Basket Weaving Workshop
Welcome to an introduction to basket weaving with artist Anne Weil of Flax & Twine. Anne is an expert maker of all things fiber and has developed a love for working with natural materials. We are introducing multiple basket weaving techniques and a variety of natural materials to explore, explore, explore. Can’t wait to see what you create.
Learn more about the details of this project on Anne’s Featured Maker Page.
We’ll be focused on two unique natural materials: a wet spun linen and raffia ribbon. We’ll use a handmade beechwood crochet hook to complete our crochet basket and a sewing technique to join our braided basket. We have curated a kit of the preferred tools and selective natural materials Anne uses throughout her artistic process. Under Anne’s guided instruction we’ll be weaving, braiding, coiling, crocheting and shaping gorgeous handmade baskets for the home.
