“There are still spaces for what is sure to be a very great week.”
Explore shape, color, surface textures, and weaving techniques, using hand-painted cotton paper as the basket material. Learn bias plaiting and cathead weaving, and their endless variations. After weaving the baskets, cover the surfaces with applications of paper, paints and mediums, and knotless netting.
Discover the connections between material and form, and the new surface in relation to the underlying vessel. Learn the rules that can certainly be broken.
Be inspired by the colors of the region, and by the shapes and forms of objects that we find.
This workshop is open to students of all levels of experience.
