Willow Basket Weaving Workshop
The basket is one of humankind's oldest art forms. The earliest and most basic techniques of basket making are still alive and regulary used. While many crafts have become mechanized, no one has ever invented a machine that can make baskets.

About The Workshop
Learn the way of the willow! Using a combination of wild and cultivated basketry willow, we will weave a complete basket starting with the base, all the way to finishing touches like handles and a foot. You choose your own size and shape. While weaving, we will discuss harvesting and cultivation methods, materials preparation, and ongoing care for your basket. While it takes many years of practice to become proficient, a beginner can make a decent basket in a weekend course.
This workshop is full. Can you attend the same workshop on July 27-28?
