Harvey Meyer from Dunwoody, Georgia will conduct the class.

 The "Basket Illusion" project will be demonstrated and taught .

In the three day class you will learn and practice all the techniques Harvey uses to create the basket illusion. On the first day you will turn a 7-8" diameter platter. Using the beading tool, you will turn 1/8" beads on both sides of the platter and learn to burn the valley between each bead using sandpaper or Formica. You will learn how to use the jigs to index both side of the platter to a specified number of segments. You'll burn the segment lines over each bead and dye the segments following a pattern that will be supplied. On the first day you will work on one side of the small platter. On the 2nd day you will start work on a 9" platter. You will repeat the process you learned on the small platter with greater proficiency. You will be able to finish dying at least one side of the platter. Some may finish both sides. You will also learn to do the herringbone weave around the rim of the platter.
