What's Included

In this workshop we will cover how to use wild vines such as wisteria, grapevine, honeysuckle, and virginia creeper to create baskets that are both functional and beautiful. Throughout our local landscape grow a multitude of both native and invasive vines. During the day we will cover how to identify, harvest sustainably, prepare, and weave with a variety of local vines. We will cover both random weave and rib construction techniques that will be used to create a gathering basket. Each person’s individual personality will show through with these fun and unique materials! Join us as we spend the day weaving and creating as a community while learning a new skill! It is our goal for everyone to leave with a basket, the knowledge and skill to create more unique vessels in the future, and inspiration to explore the landscape.
