Come join us for a weekend of Willow Basket making.
We will begin by wandering the creeks and floodplains harvesting willow shoots to work with. Once we harvest our materials we will begin preparing them to weave. Students will be able to weave a medium to large willow basket that will be complete by the end of the workshop!
Students will learn to:
- Identify Willow
- Effectively harvest basket canes while tending to the needs of a patch of willow.
- Weave wicker style baskets
- Feel empowered to weave more baskets on your own!
- Willow Basketry
