Basketweaving: Intro to Wickerwork
An intermediate workshop for returning students who are proficient in traditional plait basketweaving. During this four-day hands-on workshop, students will be introduced to the concepts and techniques of traditional wickerwork. Many of these techniques have their origins in weaving fabrics and we’ll use them to weave wicker. By the end of the class, you’ll have created a sampler mat of 9 common wicker weaves, 4 different types of sample bases, 3 mini baskets showcasing 3 different woven border techniques, and a sampler breadbasket that you design and weave based on the techniques you learned in the course. Weaving materials can be purchased directly from the instructor for a $41 fee.
