Experimental Basketry: Sculptural Forms
In this week-long class, students learn basic basket weaving techniques and apply them to making experimental sculptural forms, structures and vessels. The class begins with sampler pieces and moves onto small scale weaving projects. Surface treatments such as dyeing, painting, spraying painting, and adding other mediums to our baskets are discussed, demonstrated, and highly encouraged. The emphasis is on learning a variety of basic basketry techniques and using them experimentally to build sculptural forms. Bring your wild ideas and creative brain.
