Sculptural Twining Weekend Basketry Workshop in New York's Hudson Valley

Saturday November 17th and Sunday November 18th

In this workshop participants will use twining, one of the most classic and versatile basketry techniques, to create unique sculptural vessels. Students will have the opportunity to either work on one larger basket or several small ones. Great for both beginners and experienced basket makers alike as well as artists and creative individuals who love using natural materials and want to expand their skill set. This weekend workshop is perfect for those who are traveling further to attend and want to get a great taste of the world of basketry in a weekend!

Details, dates, info about the weekend are below.

About Katie Grove

 

Going out into the forests and fields, harvesting materials from nature, and sitting down in the sun to weave a basket is  my idea of a perfect day! I am an artist and educator based in the Hudson Valley of New York and my passion is to create art  that is inspired by nature. I also teach nature-based art workshops on basketry and plant dyes, where I create an environment in which individuals can explore self-expression while learning how to identify, use, and appreciate locally available natural materials. When I’m not teaching I am either working on my fine art, participating in gallery shows and residencies, or traveling.
