Willow Basket Weaving with Erin Fahey
Time: 10am-4pm Saturday & Sunday
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Erin Fahey
Join us in this hands-on class to learn the basics of willow basketry, using locally grown and wildcrafted materials. Drawing on years of experience weaving and tending willow, Erin will explain ways of harvesting and preparing materials, then guide students through the process of weaving their own generously sized, heirloom basket. We will discuss the relevant histories and traditions of basketry, learn about sustainable harvesting techniques, and gain insight into the versatility of this craft. Each student will take home a unique, naturally colorful basket.
No previous experience necessary. Open to all adults, 16 & up.
