About The Workshop
We will learn a basic technique of twined basketry using natural fibers and recycled yarns. These baskets are great as water bottle or jar covers, as well as stand alone small baskets. More adventurous projects may include backpacks, bags and larger baskets. My favorite part of this craft is that I can carry a piece I’m working on anywhere, pull it out, and give it a few minutes or a few hours, and not lose my place or progress. Please bring along any retired yarns, jute, or similar cording material if you have it. Cut up shirts, blankets or other fabric can create wonderful scrappy soft vessels.
Workshop Fee: $195.
