Event Description

Explore the exciting design possibilities of the wicker basketry technique in this 2-day course. In the process of weaving this basket, participants will learn control of shaping as well as a variety of weaving patterns. The emphasis will be on using an assortment of natural materials such as vines, barks, root and grasses with colourful dyed reed. The rich variety of materials makes for a fun and creative experience. Instructor Joan Carrigan, basketry specialist and artist, first learned basketry in 1991 and has since studied with many outstanding basket makers. She has acquired a broad-based knowledge of basketry techniques and materials, and has taught extensively. Her work has been exhibited internationally. Please Note Advance registration required. Please call 604-822-3928 or email to book. Please bring the following tools: scissors with sharp point (like embroidery scissors), an old towel, spray bottle, ruler and curved upholstery needle. Bring a bag lunch.

Cost: $175.00 public, $165.00 for Garden members
