Random Weave Basket Workshop with Artist Ellen Solari

This event last occurred on November 15, 2018, 6:30—9 pm.

Follow your intuition when you learn the fun and easy “random weave” technique to create a unique basket using studio materials with reed and other natural objects collected from the Sculpture Park. Ditch the cornucopia and present something unique and handmade on your holiday table!

No experience necessary, and all levels are welcome. We encourage those familiar with basketry to experiment with a new technique, or if you have never woven before to give it a try!

All materials will be provided. For ages 16+
