Sculptural Basket Weaving
In this workshop students will learn multiple wire weaving techniques that can be used to make anything from functional baskets to representational sculpture to large, abstract installations. Focusing on 3D design and line quality, we will cover structural variations and the ways they can be used to achieve a wide variety of forms. Students will make their own material sample “library” for their own future reference as well as several larger and/or more complex pieces that represent their individual aesthetic. Inclusion of mixed media, like yarn, fabric, paint, etc. is encouraged. This is an all-level class, no previous sculpture or weaving experience required.
Non-members $410 / Members $400
