Intro to Willow Weaving: Exploring the Round Basket

With Jesica Clark

May 2- 3

Saturday & Sunday, 9 am- 5 pm

2 meetings

Textile Works


During this weekend course students will create 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. Time permitting, students can 

weave a complementary handle. Students who have participated in a previous willow

weaving class can either revisit that same basket style or 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.

Non-member price: $215, Member price: $193.50
