Basketry With A TwistTaught by Julia Gartrell
About the Workshop
Learn how to create a basket using a traditional twining technique. We will incorporate found and reused items into these baskets to create one-of-a-kind objects. Create the basket shape of your choice, you can go large or small! No experience necessary, but if you have materials you would like to incorporate, feel free to bring them along.
