Jul 9 -22 Sculptural Basketry

  • Penland School of Crafts (map)

Instrutor: Sarita Westrup

This workshop will cover expressive ways to use basketry to create sculptural works from organic, found, and recycled materials. We’ll work intuitively with chosen objects while incorporating off-the-loom textile structures such as twining and netting. Materials might include waxed linen, reed, wire, cast concrete, air-dried clay, and anything students bring with them. We’ll emphasize process, material relationships, and experimentation. All levels.
