In this three hour introductory course, you will learn about the ancient art of coil basketry by creating your own colorful basket. Fiber artist, Nancy McRay will teach you how to begin the bottom coil of your basket, attach new layers, control the shape and add additional stitches for texture. Students will also learn how to incorporate color patterns and be inspired by both traditional and contemporary artists working with this technique. You will be amazed as your basket takes shape before your eyes as you wrap, coil, and stitch with basic, everyday materials. All supplies will be provided by the instructor.
