Basket Weaving Workshop at The Flower Fields

Saturday, April 27, 2019, 4:00 PM

The Art of Basketry  Learn how to recycle plant materials and transform them into beautiful baskets! This 1-Day Workshop is taught by award winning basket artist Nadine Spier. You will learn how to coil a a basket around an unusual stone center and to weave so your stiches line up on both sides of the basket. The instructor has developed a technique of weaving around stones and other ornate objects. It’s an easy way to start a basket and you will later find yourself looking for fun things such as brooches or pendants to use as centers in future baskets. You will be provided with flexible pine needles and Irish waxed linen thread, but your new skills can later be used to weave many common plants such as Dusty Miller, Lavender, Rosemary, fern stems, Jacaranda and much more. Basket weaving is wonderful way to channel away stress and recycle from the environment. Class size is limited – early enrollment suggested.  Ages- teens and adults.
