Working with willow and other withe (stick-like) materials means turning straight and stiff, abstract elements into a union of curvilinear forms and strength.
In this three evening workshop series, we’ll use willow from Trillium North Park to explore the important factors in making strong, durable forms of willow and other sticks, starting with prepping the materials, weaving round and oval slats (bases) and the differences between twining and two kinds of randing. All materials included.
NB – this workshop is an excellent foundation for getting the most out of the EartHand Basketry Guild, launching in January 2018
