The Basket Illusion

July 8, 2018 – July 14, 2018

Harvey Meyer

If you like basketry, then in this workshop you can discover the secrets of the “basket illusion.” Students will turn a 9-10″ platter, then learn to cut beads on the lathe. Skills learned include grid patterns, burn lines for definition, dyed patterns with appropriate colors, and if desired, filling the background with more burn lines. Design inspiration and finishing techniques are also covered. Students will complete at least one “basket illusion” platter during class. This project includes a fair amount of time spent off the lathe. Some bowl or platter turning, and sharpening experience is highly recommended.



COURSE FEE: $595


Harvey Meyer was a woodworker for many years before he started woodturning in 2000. He turns many types of forms and objects, but hollow vessels are a favorite. For the last several years, Meyer has focused on the basket illusion, in which a turned piece attempts to resemble a woven basket. He works in his home studio in Dunwoody, Georgia. Meyer is an active member of the Georgia Association of Woodturners, the Atlanta Woodturners Guild, and the American Association of Woodturners.
