Grapevine Basket

Studio Arts Workshop

Saturday, February 22, 2020 - 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Code: 1K00VU

By Lori VanKirk Schue

This workshop is also available on:

Master basket weaver Lori VanKirk Schue guides students in creating a melon- shaped basket with grapevine handle and rim. A combination of natural weaving materials and ribbing technique introduces students to the versatility of basket weaving.

They learn to properly join their grapevine rim and handle, insert rims securely for weaving a melon shape, the proper way to prepare materials, and how to use tools to create this one-of-a-kind basket.

Students supply their own spring clothespins, straight-nosed garden clippers, and a dishtowel. All other materials are provided; a $35 supply fee is payable to the instructor.
