Woven Metal Baskets
Join us to learn how basketry and fiber techniques can be used to build 3D forms in copper and other readily available metals. Techniques covered will include simple plaiting, the mad weave, open triaxial weave, and steel wire knotting. With David’s guidance, students progress through a series of projects to gain a thorough understanding of each technique. Apply color to the surface of each project using simple, safe patinas, acrylic paint, and stains for the final, finishing touches. Take home new skills that can be shared with students of all ages. All levels welcome!
