CANCELLED – Willow Bark Diagonal Plaited Baskets and Pouches – 1.5 Day Workshop in McDonald’s Corners, Ontario
May 25, 2020 - May 26, 2020$155
Sadly my trip to Ontario to teach these courses has been cancelled yet we hope to reschedule them in the future when it is safe to do so. Keep well!
A Basketry Focus Workshop presented by MERA Schoolhouse in McDonald’s Corners and Lanark Highlands Basketry Museum.
We will begin with a hands-on demonstration of how to harvest and prepare willow bark for basketmaking. Everyone will have the chance to peel some willow bark that they can keep for a future project. Joan will supply the dried and prepared bark we will need for the projects made in the course. We will start by making a diagonal plaited basket, then a diagonal plaited flat pouch and then a point pouch. All three projects have very different construction methods and rims so we can cover a lot of territory in the 1.5 days. Willow bark lends itself beautifully in these baskets. Suitable for beginners and those with some basketry experience.
Course Fee: $155 + $50 Material Fee
