This class is great for beginners interested in learning the basic characteristics and functions of the medium through step-by-step instructions. During the session, will learn weaving techniques using hand-dyed and natural reeds. By the end of the class, participants will have made a small bowl-shaped wicker basket ( approximately 6.5″ diameter) and learned some basketry basics that they can apply to future projects.
