This class will introduce weavers to native black willow bark, a very strong, flexible and beautiful fiber uncommonly used for basketry. Bark harvesting will be discussed and class participants will learn fiber preparation by removing the outer bark layer from portions of precut strips prior to constructing a small purse. Students are encouraged to create freely, choosing from a selection of weaving techniques for the basket body, and numerous twining techniques will be taught as border design options. All skill levels welcome.
