August 4, 2019 – August 10, 2019
During this workshop students learn foundational basket and net making techniques with new experimentally-driven methods. Participants will produce a work, or a series of works, that incorporates their chosen materials and methods. Binding techniques are introduced that include basket weaving with wet reeds, net making with string, and cord wrapping. You will explore color through dyeing and embellishment procedures. All techniques will be discussed and celebrated for their wide range of industrial and creative capabilities! Open to all skill levels.
