Willow Bark Diagonal Plaited Baskets – Day Two of the Willow Weekend

July 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


Day Two: Willow Bark Diagonal Plaited Baskets

We’ll begin with a discussion and hands on demonstration of how to harvest, peel and prepare willow bark. We will be exploring two different styles of Diagonal Plaiting. First, participants will weave a square desktop storage basket with their strips of willow bark. Secondly, we will weave a  wallet size flat pouch perfect for holding cards and notes. Diagonal plaiting is like a fun puzzle and is so rewarding to weave with this beautiful material.
