Debbie Johnson

Interested in basketry techniques but daunted by the construction process and how to handle the materials?  Suitable for all basket makers, hand-construction artists, sculptors, weavers, including new-comers, join us for this introductory level class! No experience is required. Students will learn the basics of basket weaving, from the bottom up, including finishing and handles–complete with dyeing and staining details to preserve the wood fibers. Class participants will make their very own 8″ by 4″ functional basket to take home, suitable for bread, fruit, various treasures, a gift basket (if you dare part with it!), or for any other function or non-function that suits the maker. A bonus kit of materials to create a second basket will be included in the material fee. Materials fee $35, payable to the instructor at class. **See supply list of items you need to bring with you to class**
