Basketry and gourds go together like peanut butter and jelly. Working with traditional open-coil and twining techniques, your gourds will become the base for beautiful baskets that you can embellish with basketry techniques using pine needles, sisal rope, reed, and paper core. By weaving and twining on gourds, you can create tapestries and functional items (like birdhouses and storage vessels) and add new dimensions to the art of gourd creations. Expect to complete two or three projects. All levels welcome.
