Basket Weaving: A Weekend Retreat with Peeta Tinay at Three Pines Farm

  • 9611 Wagner Road Cedar Falls, IA, 50613 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Basket weaving is one of the most ancient and widespread crafts. While practical, it can easily be elevated to a fine art with vision and skill. Basket making techniques and materials are very diverse, but a solid foundation of basics will take you far. Whether you are new to basket making, or have experience, this special workshop retreat with Peeta Tinay of Tinay Studio will reward you with the experience of creating a challenging beginner basket, and introduce you to various techniques and insightful perspectives on basket making.

The basket you will make in this retreat is a split spoke and twined construction, with a basket base boasting a colorful spiral pattern. Students will have vibrant colors to choose from for the basket base. Both black and brown round reed will be in this mix as well for those with a more subdue palette. The basket will be made from multiple diameters of round reed, which lend additional textural interest. All round reed will be pre-dyed (featuring Jacquard’s Basic Dye) and prepared for this specific project, providing ease and flow for this workshop retreat.

Students will learn the twining technique, the fundamentals of materials selection, basket shaping, and the importance of tension while making an approximate 15" diameter x 3" tall basket

All levels are welcome. This is a great "next steps" workshop for those who have ventured into the world of basket weaving, or a very well-rounded start for beginners. All weaving materials are provided to create one basket (15" diameter x 3" tall), which each student will make during the workshop. All tools needed will be available for use.

Cost: $350.00 per person (accommodations not included). Age requirement: 18+.

Shibori Tea Towels Workshop with Cassie Brehmer

Join our pal Cassie Brehmer for this fun project class as you shape, bind and dye your own tea towels featuring Jacquard’s Indigo Dye.

Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. The word comes from the verb root shiboru, “to wring, squeeze, press.” … Cloth shaped by these methods is secured in a number of ways, such as binding and knotting. Indigo dye, which comes from a plant, is one of the oldest dyes used for coloring fabrics and the one still used today to color blue jeans. This natural dye process has long been used in many cultures around the world. The unique characteristics of indigo dyeing make it easy to create wonderful resist patterns on fabric.
