Wild Basketry: Weaving With Natural Materials

June 14, 2020 – June 20, 2020

Katie Grove

In this workshop students will use wild-harvested plant materials including cattails, iris, tree bark and vines to create baskets using a variety of techniques. The class will cover twining, regular, and random weaves, as well as embellishments and cordage. Students will get hands-on experience preparing bark and vines and participate in harvesting/plant identification walks. Throughout the week, participants will finish multiple unique baskets depending on which materials and technique combinations they choose. If you love to go out into nature and explore the possibilities for making art, then this workshop is for you. Open to all skill levels.
