I've done a lot of crafts in my life, but nothing quite like this. I'm used to working with materials that are soft like threads and fabric, or something completely rigid like glass. The stuff that you use for a basket is neither... and it tends to fight back just a bit. It takes some getting used to but is a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. And there is something to be said for the nearly-instant gratification. After just a few hours of work, you have an attractive and useful finished project. This is one of the best "instant gratification" crafts that I have ever found.
I made sure to pick up a complete class schedule before leaving. In addition to the classes affiliated with the county, there are others on a regular basis. The next class is in a couple of weeks. I'm pretty sure I'll be there. ;)
