2013 Castine Fishing Basket Class

 Class prototype of the Fishing Basket & Fishing Rod by Francine Coyon
Unfortunately, the fishing boat was not included :(
Francine was an excellent teacher. Being mainly French speaking, she was concerned about her English (which was superior to our French). She provided a very good instruction booklet with step-by-step pictures of major steps in construction. Her demonstration of making a "twist" reminded me of those famed French pantomimes. Everyone in class finished our project by Thursday, so on Friday she had us make a round basket for fun. 
 Francine Coyon's 2nd class--a doll's basket
 A gift from Valerie Klibert--she gave everyone in Francine's fishing basket this set of containers
 Laurine Ben Dov's collection of woven baskets

 Laurine flocked this goat with her real life dog's hair!

A fun class, with great classmates. Carol Hardy's daughter was in the class.
