wild baskets series
This 7 part series meets one Satuday a month for an immersive dive into basket making through the seasons. Our learning will cover reading the landscape for basketry materials, harvesting, processing and preparing plants into workable material and exploring different techniques of basket making. We will create a collection of wild and beautiful baskets, deepening our connections to ourselves, the earth and each other.
Projects include: bark containers, coiling with grasses, cordage with soft fibers, woven bark baskets, ribbed baskets, twining and diagonal plaiting. Note that depending on the project, not all baskets will be completed within the day and may require you to do some “homework.”
Dates: April 27, May 18, June 15, July 27, August 24, September 28, October 26
Cost is sliding scale $525-750
