In this in-depth basketry course, students will explore the range of materials found in Northern Minnesota that can be used for making baskets. Birch, Basswood, Spruce, Cedar, Willow and Ash are some of the local species with ties to basketry. Work with different materials to create a collection of 3-4 baskets while learning a variety of styles and traditions. As part of this class, the group will venture out to the woods for a few harvest demonstrations and discussion of harvest ethics.
