Twining is the twisting of two (or more) fl exible weft (horizontal) elements around vertical warp elements. Delightfully simple or rich with pattern, these baskets have been a staple of indigenous peoples. Coiling is stitching over a core and plaiting looks like a woven structure. We’ll practice and compare all three. ALL LEVELS WELCOME.

By the time the interior is laid, inlay ideas may occur to you, or leave it simple to embroider or needle felt later. They’re custom fi t and the thickness of the felt is your choice too. Bring an old towel.

Thursday, August 9, 6:30–9:30pm
