Learn the way of the willow! Using a combination of wild and cultivated basketry willow, you will weave a complete basket starting with the base, all the way to finishing touches like handles and a foot. While weaving, we will discuss harvesting and cultivation methods, materials preparation, and ongoing care for your basket. Please bring a knife and garden clippers if you have them.
Here is a taste of the instructors and classes we will have at the gathering! Stay tuned for updates.
