Some of the finest, most beautiful baskets in the world are made with the covered coil technique. Using one continuous, round length of core material, wound around or on top of itself in an expanding or decreasing spiral to construct the basket, coiling lends itself to a wide variety of expressions. Silk, wool, cotton or novelty yarns will be used to completely cover the core material, and concentrated attention given to shaping, rims and embellishing techniques, with examples of Lynn’s coiled baskets to inspire you.
