Independent Study:  As always students may choose a basket for independent study by working with the instructors to select the basket and make sure the materials are available. The materials fee will vary depending on the materials required.

Equipment:  While we do have equipment that students may use in class, we do recommend that you bring an old towel, a small rectangular plastic dishpan, spray bottle, and a pair of scissors (not your best sewing shears). 

We do recommend calling either Elaine or Sheila to let us know that you will be planning to start a basket, so that we can bring the appropriate supplies.
