New Uses of an Ancient Basketry Technique
Basket making is an ancient craft rich in tradition and technique. Today’s artists are using age-old techniques to create sculptural pieces that challenge the definition of “basket.” This class will focus on twining, using colorful waxed linen thread. Students will begin with a small pre-made base to make sure they have the basics before exploring the many possibilities of pattern, shape and texture. The focus of the class is technique and using those techniques to create something unique.
