*Please Note: Teens that have participated in a year-round Wild Earth program or Ropes Summer Camp are invited to take this class.
In this workshop you will learn how to take grasses, cattails, daylily leaves, and many other natural materials and create coiled baskets. Coiling is an ancient and versatile basketry technique in which a wrapping strand is sewn around coils of material to build a form. It is used all over the world to create beautiful vessels that can be either decorative or functional.
If you are excited about using found natural materials to create art and learning a fun and unique new skill, then join us!
Everyone will leave with a medium sized basket (approx. 8” x 8” x 5”), the skills to create more pieces in the future, and inspiration to explore your local natural landscape.
*This class is appropriate for students at any level. Some hand strength and dexterity is required.
