Basket Classes with Jackie Abrams!

Brattleboro member, Jackie Abrams, is teaching some of her basket techniques this summer at some beautiful locations. Read On!

July 22 -27, 2012

Hexagonal Weave

Sievers School of Fiber Arts Washington Island, Wisconsin. It’s a beautiful drive and ferry trip to get to this special place – well worth it.

Class Description:
Create baskets inspired by an ancient Asian technique, the openwork hexagonal weave. Paint your own cotton paper and weave the first layer in the hexagonal weave, similar to the Shaker cheese baskets. Use this as a framework to interlace second and third layers, or for layers of random weave and color. Experiment with the possibilities of form, size, and color design. Covers are optional.form with a new surface, including applications of paper, paints and mediums, and knotless netting. Discover the connections between the unique new surface and the structure of the underlying vessel. Explore materials and be surprised by what you discover, what you can make happen. Almost anything is possible.
