Guest Artisan Workshop: Basketmaking with Katie Grove Studios

Join the Arts & Ecology Lab in hosting Katie Grove from Katie Grove Studios. In this workshop you will learn how to take grasses, cattails, daylily leaves, and other natural materials and create coiled baskets. Coiling is an ancient and versatile technique in which a wrapping strand is sewn around coils of material to build a form. It is used all over the world to create beautiful vessels that can be either decorative or functional. Join a harvest walk and learn to identify, harvest, and prepare foraged materials all while coiling baskets using a variety of stitches. Everyone will leave with a basket, the skills to create more pieces in the future, and inspiration to explore your local natural landscape. Photo by Luis Ruiz.
