Coil Basket Weaving with Katie Grove

January 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

| $75 plus $15 material fee to instructor

Sunday January 29th 10:00 – 4:30

Have you ever looked outside and wondered what you could make with the abundance of natural materials growing in your own yard? In this workshop you will learn how to take grasses, cattails, daylily leaves, and many other natural materials and create coiled baskets. Coiling is an ancient and versatile basketry technique in which a wrapping strand is sewn around coils of material to build a form. It is used all over the world to create beautiful vessels that can be either decorative or functional. During the workshop we will discuss how to identify, harvest, and prepare a variety of local materials all while coiling baskets using a variety of stitches. If you are excited about using found natural materials to create art and learning a fun and unique new skill, then join us! Everyone will leave with a basket, the skills to create more pieces in the future, and inspiration to explore your local natural landscape.
