Basket Making with a Twist
with Barbara Shapiro
Zoom Workshop Saturday, April 24, 2021, 10am – 12:30pm PDT
Fee: $75 ($60 for TAC members: use promo code) Deadline to register: 4/16
We will create one or more twisted cubes. Plaiting, which we will use, is one of the four elementary structures of traditional basketry from time immemorial, along with coiling, twining, and stake-and-strand. Via Zoom, this workshop will offer a contemporary twist on a traditional open form and should engage students in further exploration. They can contain an object, like a cork, for a pleasant rattle or a personal item making them a memory box. They can add a spot of color in a grouping of objects.
Skill level: Beginner to Advanced
Class material will be purchased or provided by students. A materials list will be provided upon registration. The cost of supplies will vary depending on materials on hand and may be as high as $30.
Please note: This workshop is open to all. There is a discounted workshop price for members of the Textile Arts Council.
