Sculptural Basketry +
We’ll explore basketry as a sculptural medium capable of expressing ideas and carrying meaning beyond its utilitarian traditions. We’ll focus on twining with waxed linen and reed and also cover other processes such as netting, looping, random weave, and crochet. Most importantly we’ll share, discover, connect, interact, play, create, and have fun! All levels. NOTE: Textiles workshops are taught in walk-up studios accessible by a stair lift. Code 05TA
