Lee-Ann Chellis Wessel Posted October 1, 2014 Share Posted October 1, 2014 I really enjoyed taking Bonni Backe's class at the recent Study Program at Strawbery Banke in Portsmouth NH. Our class project was a 19th century Chinese basket which was lined with insulation to carry a teapot full of hot tea. This is the basket with teapot that is in collections at Strawbery Banke. The tilt top stand on which they sit was the class project for Pete and Pam Boorum's class. Success ! This is the basket I made under Bonni's direction . I made the 7/16" tall teapots for the class so of course needed to join the class and learn how to make a basket for my teapot. This shows the silk covered insulated lining of the basket's interior with the teapot nested inside. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
