About this Event

Learn to craft your own beautiful baskets or mats using the coil and stitch technique. The beauty of this style of basketry is in the flexibility of the materials you can use – raffia, grasses, recycled fabric scraps or even soft plastics can be turned into something useful. If you have any of these at home you’d like to donate to the workshop, feel free to bring them along.
