Tree barks provide one of nature’s most beautiful materials for basket making. This course will begin with a hands-on discussion covering the respectful harvesting and preparation of local tree barks. With a selection of willow barks, red and yellow cedar bark, and other local barks, participants will explore techniques such as plaiting, twill, and twining. Principles of designing a basket and variations in weaving patterns will be covered. Sample baskets will be on hand for inspiration.
