This is an entry-level workshop for those who want to learn the beautiful and useful art of basketry.  The course will cover several styles of traditional basketry from around the world. The course includes information on basket material selection, harvesting techniques and seasons, how to make wicker basketry from vines, how to make coil basketry from grasses and twigs, and how to make bark baskets from sheets of bark. Materials will be provided by us, and supplemented by materials that we show how to gather from nature.  Each student will go home with different styles of natural baskets that they have made.
