      EVENT DETAILS
      Harvest Basket

      Before we had Tupperware® and Samsonite® we had baskets! As soon as men (and women!) were able to plait fibers together, they began to experiment with structures for woven containers. Learn how to make your own wicker basket in this fun and very functional workshop!

      Fiber artist, Carla Filippelli, will teach you the basics of wicker basketry to create an original “harvest” basket. Using hand dyed reeds, Carla will teach you how to set up your space, form your basket, incorporate textural variations into your work, and, finally, finish your piece. While you weave, you’ll enjoy lively discussions about reed dyeing, basketry tips, and the rich history of craft making in these western NC mountains. Everyone will leave with an impressive creation!
