What's Included

In this coiled basketry workshop you will learn how to create baskets using the coiling technique: an ancient and versatile method of constructing vessels. We will be focusing on the use of natural, local materials including cattail leaves, rushes, and grasses. Learn how to identify, harvest, and prepare these materials and then use them to create a unique basket. If you are excited about learning new skills, working with your hands, using found natural materials to create art, or even just gathering with a group of kind people on an early winter day please join us! We will be providing all of the supplies. It is our goal for everyone to leave with a basket, the skills to create more unique vessels in the future, and inspiration to explore the landscape.
