Random Weave Nesting Basket

Instructor Beth Hester

Saturday, February 6, 2016

9 AM - 4:30 PM

$70 Members   $78 Non-members

Exploration is the theme of this workshop!

 Join us at the Kentucky Museum for a fun day; explore random weave techniques as you create a sculptural 'Nest'. Students will build a frame for the basket's opening and sides using round reed then weave with natural, smoked and dyed reed and cane. Build your nest shallow or deep; weave solid/firm sides or create a nest that's open/airy.

 Optional: students may bring a variety of other materials to incorporate into their 'Nest' such as yarn, ribbon, strips of paper, cording and waxed linen are a few examples.

Thanks to Lynne Marrs Hammer Ferguson, Artist in Residence, Kentucky Museum for her inspiration in developing this workshop.
