Twined Basketry Basics with Nancy Bindig
October 5 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm$50
This beginner level workshop will teach you all of the foundations for weaving an upright basket using the tabby and twining techniques and using round reed as the material. You will learn how to measure, cut, shape and weave a “Stake and Strand” basket and finish it with a simple border. Some colored reed and materials will be provided for each person to add personal touches to their basket. (5 hour class with 1/2 hour lunch break)
Nancy is both a fiber artist and art instructor. She started her self-taught basketry journey years ago with traditional techniques, materials and forms, then moved on to incorporating natural palm inflorescence and natural reeds in a new series. She holds a BS in Art Education and has taught a variety of adults and children in a myriad of settings. Believing that all experience becomes woven intricately into our lives, she combines a love of art, nature, basketry and teaching in her own life. Striving to give others the opportunity to make art and find either a new creative voice or re-claim a buried passion, she encourages others to experience art as a vehicle for fun, relaxation, personal expression, and self-care! $50 + $25 supplies
