Antler Basketry

Course Overview

The graceful curve of the deer antler provides a creative springboard for the emerging folk-art form of antler basketry. In this course students learn to weave stunning rib-style baskets from dyed and natural rattan reed, incorporating a deer antler as the handle or focal point of the design. The project will be a wall pocket basket, incorporating the Southern “cross over turn-back” weaving technique, spacing the ribs and many more tips that comfortably introduce the skills of basketmakers. Antler basketry is a creative, colorful way to spend the weekend with old friends or find new friends during the course. Dimensions approx. 14”H x 8”W x 4”D. Note: materials fee is payable to instructor during class.
