Twining with Local Soft Materials
November 17 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm$120 – $140
Soft materials such as rush, water iris leaves and flower leaves offer the basket maker a beautiful material for fine twining. We will be using a combination of these materials to weave a basket with a radiating spoke base. Variations of twining will be presented and can be incorporated as you design your own basket. Focus will be placed on how to control the shaping of your basket. Soft materials such as these are readily accessible in our gardens, roadside ditches and ponds. Harvest and storing tips will be discussed. This basket is suitable for all levels.
This workshop is taking place at the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific in Victoria, BC. To Register: https://hcp.ca/event/twining-with-local-soft-materials-workshop-with-joan-carrigan/
