In this workshop, taught in the German tradition, students learn to prepare the white willow into fine skeins to be used to weave a four-inch spiral basket over a mold. The history of German skeining is integral to the class, including information on the willows used. This includes a fully-wrapped foot and rim, adding of spokes in chase weave, and whaling. Participants must be physically capable of eight-hour days of fine weaving. Open to all skill levels, however some weaving experience is beneficial.




COURSE FEE: $600
