Are you new to basket making or always wanted to take a workshop? Come cut your teeth on a challenging, rewarding and substantial beginning basket with Peeta Tinay. Made baskets in the past? Come brush up on your skills and learn some new techniques and perspectives about basket making. Immerse yourself in a 2 day, all Inclusive basketry workshop! Students will learn the twining technique, fundamentals of materials selection, basket shaping, and the importance of tension while making an approximate 15" diameter x 3" tall basket.
The split spoke and twined construction of this basket base will boast 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 pallet. In this workshop 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. This provides ease and flow for this workshop. HAND STRENGTH IS REQUIRED. All levels welcome! A great "next steps" workshop for those who have ventured into the world of basket weaving.
Registration is required, and class size is very limited.
