Heart Basket Workshop


Sunday, February 3,

With Margaret Smith

Class can accept up to 8 participants

Materials and tools to share will be provided.
Coffee and tea will be provided.
Bring a lunch or snack. 
We will take a ½ hour break in early afternoon.

Class Description: Using sustainably gathered Vashon cattail leaves we will begin with a checkerboard square, twine around it and create a classic elbow or heart basket about 4 1/2” tall, perfect for yourself or your Valentine. Other techniques will include plaiting, chasing, a braid finish and a handle made of northwest sweetgrass cordage or a four-strand braid. 

Basketmaking tools to bring if you have them: scissors, a small ruler, water squirt bottle, blunt tapestry needle, clothes pins, one or two kitchen towels that will be dampened.  

Artist Statement: Gathering, processing and weaving grant a sense of well-being as the creative journey unfolds.
