Twined Baskets: New Uses for an Ancient Technique
Join today’s artists in using age-old techniques to create sculptural pieces that challenge the idea of “basket.” Using colorful waxed linen, learn the basics of twining, including bases and rims. Explore the many possibilities of pattern, shape and texture. Discuss trends in contemporary basketry and the historical work that inspires it. All are welcome; experienced twiners will work on advanced shaping. No supply fee; an instructor kit fee of $45 is payable during the class.
NOTE: By instructor request, all students in this workshop, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear masks while in the studio. Snow Farm has medical masks available or students may bring cloth masks; no bandanas or scarves, please.
