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. Hands-on instruction provides students with an introduction to the traditions and skills of basket weaving, and discussion about how to identify sweetgrass and gather materials for future projects. No previous basket weaving experience is necessary, just your enthusiasm to learn.
