Introduction to Willow Basketry LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In this workshop you will learn how to use willow to weave strong and beautiful baskets. 

Using the techniques of two-strand twining and basic randing each participant will create a unique basic shaped basket that can be used for a multitude of purposes. Throughout the day we will cover how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare willow for weaving as well as how to propagate patches for continual use. 

Willow is a versatile and easy to use material that has been used by many cultures to create vessels for centuries. Join us for a day of laugher, community, and learning as we integrate this ancient knowledge into our lives. 

Everyone will leave with a basket, the knowledge and skill to continue weaving, and inspiration to explore the landscape. 

This class is appropriate for students at any level. Moderate hand strength is required.

We will be working with your hands in and out of water.
