Course Description


Basketmaking Techniques – Two Different Styles

Participants in the class will learn to use commercially available reed, made from the core of a tropical vine, to weave two different styles of baskets – one round ribbed basket and a rectangular flat-bottomed basket with handle. The class is suitable for both beginners and those who have taken previous classes. They will learn basic skills of weaving and shaping and new techniques for adding design features. The skills and techniques learned can be a foundation for further basketweaving projects.

Continuing Education (CE) courses and programs offered online through LSU Online & Continuing Education typically include a combination of lecture and discussion as well as reading and writing assignments. You need an adequate command of English in all skill areas (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) to participate in classes.

If English is not your native language, you must meet one of the English language proficiency requirements below to be successful in our CE programs. If you intend to register for a CE course or program, you can determine whether you meet English proficiency requirements by self-assessment prior to enrolling. We want to empower you, the learner, to progress successfully. Completing this self-assessment will enable you to make a good decision on whether you can complete one of our programs.

Intermediate English Skills

When assessing yourself, be sure to read through each of the categories under Column B2 to make sure you meet proficiency requirements.

Online Distance Learning courses and microcreds are for-credit courses and might require more advanced English skills, equivalent to a C1 level on the Learner Self-Assessment Form. Be sure to read through each of the categories under Column C1 to make sure you meet proficiency requirements.
