Full-Day Workshop: Learn to Basket Weave
Basketry is the art of working with flexible organic materials – bark, sapling, fibers, splints, etc. – and interweaving them into usable containers of various sizes. Baskets were an essential tool for our ancestors, and are still highly valued and used in many cultures today. Whether you are looking to make a collection basket, a long-term pack basket, or a simple container for household goods, this workshop is for you!
During our day together, we’ll dive into one of the basic styles of basic weaving: splintwork. We will spend our time weaving a small, model-sized basket to learn the basic principles of the method. After that, there is no limit to what is possible with this simple technique!
