Basket Making: Twining with Natural Materials

with Katie Grove (Katie Grove Arts)

Cost: $10, Free to Members. $10 materials fee per person.

Note: This workshop is limited to 12 participants. Pre-registration is required.

Want to learn how to make a basket but don’t know where to begin? In this class Katie Grove will introduce the classic basketry technique of twining, using locally harvested plant materials. Used by people all over the world, twining is a technique in which two weavers are twisted around uprights to create a tightly woven basket. It can be adapted to use with many different materials and in this class we will focus on cattails, basswood fiber, inner tree bark and more. In addition to finishing one or two small baskets we will also discuss harvesting and processing materials. If you are excited about learning a new craft using plants that grow all around us then join us for a morning of learning and creativity!
