Coil Basketry is a beautiful, easy to learn method for any size and shape of basket. Once you learn this method you can make small baskets that will hold your change or baskets to hold your laundry. This method can use natural materials or scrap fabric or rope. This method has been employed by traditional peoples across the world, using a variety of materials. Some people would make baskets so tight they could hold water. The sky is the limit with where you choose to take this skill. Children are welcome as long as they are old enough to use a needle and thread, and if parents are available to help them.
For this workshop we will use grass, a needle and thread with an optional leather base.
$2 needle and thread
$4 needle, thread and leather base
