$370.00

Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $335
Material Fee: $35

Explore experimental basketwork woven on turned or found wooden bowls. We will first focus on foundational twining and random weave basketry techniques by creating a small, round basket/bowl together. Then we’ll apply that to design our own unique bowls. You will leave class with both a craft technique and an understanding of the design sensibilities involved in combining the two mediums. You are encouraged to bring in your own found wooden bowls, and a variety will be available for experimentation.
