Four Inset-Handle Basket: An Immersion In Round Reed
October 21, 2018 – October 27, 2018
During this workshop students rediscover the fundamental skills of twining, using round reed as they create their own basket. Participants learn techniques including hand placement, tension and shaping while weaving. As your basket comes to completion, you will learn the multiple step finishing process that brings depth and luster. This is a challenging, but rewarding intermediate-level class. Prior twining experience and hand strength are required.
COURSE FEE: $525
