Basketry is the art of working with flexible organic materials - bark, sapling, fibers, splints, etc. - and interweaving them into usable containers of various sizes. ​Baskets can be made from a variety of natural materials - tree bark, fibers, splints, vines, saplings, roots, pine needles, and more. They can be woven into any size or shape, and are commonly used for plant collection, nut harvesting, transporting goods, and even boiling water and cooking in! Baskets were an essential tool for our ancestors, and are still highly valued today. Whether you're looking to make a collection basket, a long-term pack basket, or a simple container for household goods, this technique is for you!

In this program, we'll dive into one of the most basic styles of basic weaving: splintwork. We will spend our time weaving a small, model-sized basket to teach you the basic principles. After that, there is no limit to what is possible with this simple technique!

Ages 16+
