Twined Basket Basics Class
Saturday, September 14, 2019
Learn the foundations for weaving an upright basket using tabby and twining techniques in round reed material. Make a miniature 2" x 3" basket to learn all the steps, you will then move on to starting a larger basket. You will learn how to measure, cut, shape and weave a "Stake and Strand" basket and finish with a simple border stitch on the rim.. Colored reed and other weaving materials will be provided for each person to add personal touches to their basket.
Nancy Bindig of Merritt Island 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 incorporate palm inflorescence and other natural materials. Teaching gives others the opportunity to make art and find a new creative voice or re-claim a buried passion.
Fee for the workshop is $65 plus a $25 supply fee. Deadline to register is September 12. You can register online at https://www.studiosofococoabeach.org.
