About the event
Basketry is older than the written record: a truly ancient, global human skill. Around the world, various materials and styles of weaving, sewing, twining, and coiling have allowed for the creation of vessels, trays, plates, hats, shoes, clothing, and more. Weaving is an instinctive act; we all know how to do it - we just need to remember.
Learn to make a French Rand bouquet basket! We'll cover identification, responsible collection, materials processing and storage, and creation, including the basics of stake-and-strand waling and randing weaves. $115 includes all required tools, materials, and tuition.
