Workshop Overview

Design and weave a slim natural purse shape to carry your phone, daybook or sketch pad. First you will learn the character and beauty of natural bark basketry plus some prepping skills along with techniques for weaving, stitching, edging and borders. After creating the base, you will personalize your pouch while learning twillweave and twining skills, cordage and border finishes. Time allowing, a liner will be made and sewn inside. Bring along threads or fabric from home or a favorite felting project, buttons, gems and other artifacts you might incorporate. This is a great workshop for all levels.
