Beginners Willow Basketry


  • 956 South Anson Road Stanfordville, NY, 12581 United States (map)

December 14th & 15th 2019, 9:00am - 5:00pm

Organized by me! Hosted by Anne Bernstein and Tosso Hettinger in Stanfordville, NY. $230 per student, meals and materials included.

During this weekend course we will work on creating beautiful round baskets from willow. Learn to construct a beginners basket with a circular base, rounded or sharp angled upsett, a choice of side weaves and a woven border. If we have time you can choose and weave a complimentary handle. For those that have taken a previous class with me, we can either revisit that same basket style or you can explore a different type of basket. 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. Includes an amazing home-cooked vegetarian lunch prepared by our hosts, Anne and Tosso.
