TEXTILES SUMMER SESSION 1
MAY 28–JUNE 2, 2023
In this experimental basketry workshop, students will learn methods for building nonfunctional forms from reed, wire, and waxed linen. Techniques will include twining, starting various basket bottoms, and twining backward to create curves. We’ll modify the surfaces of our sculptural baskets using thin-set mortar, powdered graphite, spray paints, and watered-down acrylic paints. Bring your curious and experimental self and leave with a foundation of sculptural basketry skills. All levels. Second-floor textiles studio.
