Fall Traditional Basketry Series
Sundays October 6, October 20, & November 3rd, 10-4:30
at the Scholars Garden, Fall City
Join us! This course has been great for beginners or as a refresher for those with past experience. It is designed to teach the four core weaving techniques which are used in traditional basketry around the world, while using local, wild-foraged materials to create your own unique basket. We will work with pine needles, willow, cedar bark, rush, sweetgrass, cherry bark, cattail and more as we create baskets using the coil, twined, plaited and wicker techniques. This may serve as a segue for those interested in the more intensive Traditional Basketry & Weaving Apprenticeship program which follows.
October 6th– ‘Treasure Basket’– We’ll make a sweet scented basket or small tray using the Coil basketry technique with Ponderosa pine needles & fragrant sweetgrass perfect to hold precious objects. These make great Holiday gifts!
October 20th– ‘Herb & Seed Basket’– The Twined & Plaited basketry technique using Cattail, Cedar bark & Basket sedge, make strong, light and airy baskets ideal for drying and storing herbs and seeds. These are great as gift containers.
November 3rd– ‘Harvest Basket’– Made using the Wicker basketry technique from Willow, Reed & Red osier make sturdy and highly functional baskets perfect for foraging from farm and field. These are perfect for holiday gift baskets!
