In this class we will make a frame with striking red osier dogwood and then weave a basket with a handle using a mixture of cattail and iris leaves, basswood fiber, willow and sweet grass. Students will learn a variety of techniques that enhance the fabric texture of your basket beyond the basic over/under pattern that is traditionally used when weaving a basket. How to make cordage and twining and wrapping techniques will be taught. Beginners are welcome.
