July 9, 10am-4pm, 8 person capacity
Baskets are a time honored tradition that inspire people to meld with the natural world around them. Willow is a coppicing tree that can be harvested every year and still provides the following year. In this workshop you will learn how to make a beautiful, functional stake and strand willow basket with locally and US-grown basketry willows.
Shannon Robertson began making baskets in 2011. She appreciates all mediums of basketry but loves willow the most for its sturdiness and functionality. She is currently propagating pest-resistant varieties for her supply and is passionate about inspiring others to make baskets and grow willows of their own through her business, Whatcom Willow Works.
