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.

No basketry experience needed. Please bring a knife and garden clippers if you have them

Workshop Fee: $195.

Willow provided. Lunch and snacks provided.

Workshop Instructor: Nick LaHaise, Hearth Folk School, Sebastopol, CA
