In this workshop, you will learn various basketry construction techniques including coiling, twining, plaiting, netting, and interlacing. You’ll also learn how to create your own cordage from recycled materials. We’ll study historic basketry traditions, and also look at the way contemporary artists are using fiber construction techniques today. Using materials found and foraged, we’ll explore potential for complex and evocative sculptural forms that you can create from anywhere!
