A variety of techniques will be covered including twining, coiling, cordage, knotless netting and knotting. These techniques offer a broad exposure to weaving with soft material and we will finish several projects of diverse approach and material. Demonstration and discussion will cover how to harvest and prepare accessible plant materials for use in basketry as well as potentials for recycling materials.
