À propos de l'événement

This workshop is a part of our Guest Artists Series. 

This workshop is an introduction to basketry using three common weaving materials that are native to Vermont; birch bark, cedar bark and black ash.  Students will create a series of small baskets using a variety of weaving techniques and in the process learn one of the oldest crafts in human history. For thousands of years baskets served as indispensable objects in every culture. Carry on the tradition and take home a trio of beautiful, durable and useful baskets crafted from responsibly harvested materials. 

A materials fee of $50 will be due to the instructor upon arrival. 

We will have a lunch break. There are restaurants right here in the downtown strip to grab a bite or bring your lunch and eat right here in the studio. 

Guest Instructor- Penny Hewitt

Among other things, Penny is a homeschooling mom, craftsperson and homesteader, who is inspired by the traditions of many cultures to revitalize and share skills useful to everyday life. In an effort to deepen her connection to the land and limit her participation in consumer culture, she strives to grow, craft and participate in seasonal harvests for as many of her needs and wants as possible.  She is also grateful to be part of a generous community of talented makers and growers with whom she trades skills, ideas and wares.  She uses hand-harvested resources from the forest, letting the qualities of varying materials dictate their use.
