Course Overview

In the Willow Basket World, there are an infinite number of basketry techniques to learn and perfect. Rib-style techniques will be the focus for this class, following the designs of many centuries-old basket styles. Learn about willow as a basket material; using wild and cultured varieties; and harvesting, sorting, and preparing for weaving. A variety of techniques, such as frame making, lashings, rib placement, coiling with willow, etc., will be discussed and sampled. Students will finish the workshop by weaving a Willow Ridge Herb Basket, one of Jo’s favorite designs! This workshop is suitable for all skill levels, but hand strength is a must – willow is a strong material.
