Grass Coil Basketry

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 use the same method to create larger baskets to hold your laundry. This method can use natural materials or scrap fabric or rope, but we will stick to grass. Traditional peoples across the world employ this coiling method, using a variety of materials. 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 a pre-made base. Cost is $4 for materials.
