Mystery Basket Project

Good news!  There is still time to participate in this project.  Go through your basket, craft and art supplies and put 10 items in a paper grocery bag. Seal the bag, bring it to the Fall Workshop, and give it to Julie Leisgang.

 

Julie will then assign a different number to all of the bags and redistribute them in identical bags to the participants. Participants will not know whose bag of supplies they have.  To keep it all a mystery, the bag may NOT be opened until you are home. Participants will have about four months to make a basket using their own materials and at least 6 items from the bag.  When completed, the Mystery Baskets are then brought to the January 26, 2019 guild meeting/potluck and returned to the person who filled the bag.

 

Details:

Everyone will need to use the same size plain paper grocery bag (or all from the same grocery store) so you can keep the bag owner a mystery.

The basket must be at least 6” x 6” x 6”; there is no maximum size. You must use at least 6 items from the Mystery Bag.  You can use any number of items from your supplies.

 

What to put in your Mystery Bag:

Dyed reed, wood, embellishments, natural fibers, handle, fabric, dye, wood base, waxed linen, yarn, beads, paper, wire… basically anything you have ever thought about putting into a basket or have seen in a basket.  Be creative and have fun with it.  Also remember you are not providing all of the material for the basket—you are providing items to encourage creativity.
