with Jesica Clark
Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13
9am - 5pm (1 hour lunch break)
Two meetings, in person
Glebe House Outdoor Garden, 635 Main Street
During this weekend course we will work on creating beautiful round baskets from willow. Learn to construct a traditional basket with a circular base, rounded or sharp angled upsett, a choice of side weaves and a woven border. If we have time, you can choose and weave a complementary handle. For those that have participated in one of my previous classes, we can either revisit that same basket style or you can explore a different type of round basket. Participants will finish the class with a sturdy and useful vessel. Willow can be challenging to work with. Someone with hand issues or weak hands may find this class difficult. Includes 1 hr lunch break.
About Jesica Clark:
Jesica is the owner and operator of Willow Vale Farm in Stanfordville, NY. In the summer she tends her vegetable market garden and in the winter she weaves her homegrown willow into baskets while daydreaming about the vegetable garden. The basket forms she creates are a result of her conversation with each piece she weaves. All of her produce and willow is grown without pesticides and with loving care.
