Native people of the Plateau region wove beautiful twined bags using plant materials they gathered from their surroundings. These flat twined bags were used for storing dried foods and other valuables.
In this class we weave a flat twined bag of our own, learning the techniques used for centuries. Students weave a small 4"x6" version of the larger traditional bag during this single day class.
In the modern world these bags can serve not only their traditional purposes but will also make great wallets, an extra pocket for your everyday essentials, or even a unique and stylish cell phone case.
Students learn twining, reverse twining, full-turn twining and a false braided rim. False embroidery with dyed corn husk is also taught so weavers can add color and pattern to their creations.
Handcrafted tools become an extension of ourselves, a pathway for our creativity to pass through to spring to life in the projects we create. Join this class to create a bone awl to use on your next basketry project, helping it come to life. In class, bone will be shaped and set into a wooden handle with pitch glue to become an extension of yourself. Come with us to create your own custom made tool to use for years to come.
