We will explore basketry as a sculptural medium capable of expressing ideas and carrying meaning beyond utilitarian aspects of traditional basketry. We will focus on twining, and also learn other processes such as netting and random weave. Most importantly we will share, discover, connect, interact, play, create and have fun!
All levels are welcome.
