We are so excited to have Katie come in and share with us her unique approach to basketry and knowledge!
At our first all-day workshop, you will make a traditional Appalachian style egg basket with a twist– fabric and yarn will be incorporated alongside vines to create a fun, colorful and highly personalized look. We will start with a grapevine frame with god’s eye lashing and then use a choice of either a traditional or random weave techniques to give the basket a soft but sturdy construction. There is a lot of room for your individuality to shine in this basket and everyone’s will turn out a different size and shape depending on the materials you choose to weave with. You will go home with a basket. instructions to create many more, and inspiration to continue weaving!
