Teaching: 

Willow basketry

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.
