Intro to Willow Basketry


  • Pouhkeepsie Trolley Barn 489 West Main Street Poughkeepsie, NY, 12601 United States (map)

Organized through Mid-Hudson Heritage Center, more info and registration here.

Over the course of the two days you will learn about willow as a natural material and will weave a round base using a twining pattern, work up the sides and optional integrated handles in waling and French randing and then complete with a woven border. Participants will finish the class with a sturdy and useful vessel. Willow can be challenging to work with. Someone with hand issues or weak hands may find this class difficult.
