Coiled Basket Weaving Workshop: April 2018

Learn how to coil a beautiful basket around a polished stone center with artist Nadine Spier. It’s an easy way to start a basket and you’ll find yourself looking for exciting things to use for centers such as brooches, pendants, etc.   Students will learn how to weave so their stitch work is identical on both sides of the basket using the Swirling Basic Stitch. Pine needles and Irish waxed linen thread provided, but the coiling technique can later be used to weave many other common plants. In addition to learning the basics of coiling, you will learn how to insert beads between coils, adding beads as exterior embellishment, how to shape and finish the basket, and other techniques depending on the student’s interest.
