Sweetgrass Basketry

Course Overview

Work with locally-harvested sweet grass, cattails, and sedges during this two-day class while learning the art of coiling a sweetgrass basket. We'll incorporate an elegant agate as a base for the basket and make a small birch bark ornament wrapped in sweetgrass. Hands-on instruction provides students with an introduction to the traditions and skills of basket weaving, and the instructor will discuss how to identify sweetgrass and to gather materials for future projects. No previous basket weaving experience is necessary, just your enthusiasm to learn.
