In this virtual workshop you will learn many foundational basketry skills by making a small, square, and very useful catch-all basket with lovely details. In this whirlwind course, we will cover the numerous stages involved in weaving a single basket of this style, material sources, design choices and considerations, and how one can use the skills learned to weave a basket for any scale or function. Participants will choose between “white” and “contrast” basket colors and a materials kit will be mailed prior to the workshop.

This class will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
