Make Your Own Coiled Basket Using Local Wild Plants

Have you ever looked outside and wondered what you could make with the abundance of plants growing in your local landscape?

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.

During the workshop we will discuss how to identify, harvest, and prepare a variety of local materials all while coiling baskets using a variety of stitches.

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.
