Advanced Basketry

In Advanced Basketry, participants will build on basic and intermediate techniques of basketry, including shaping, sizing, custom finishes, and handles. Participants will benefit from small group and individualized instruction to hone their process in order to achieve a consistent, unique outcome.

Each class includes: heavy duty needles, 80 yards of 100% cotton solid braid rope (our custom braid of rope that’s made right here in North Carolina for The Mountain Thread Co), group and individualized instruction, and handouts. Participants must bring their own machines. A limited number of shop machines may be available for rent ($10 per session)

This class is geared toward intermediate sewists who are comfortable with the following skills: threading machines, loading bobbins, following a seam allowance, changing machine needles, and adjusting stitch settings on their machines. Advanced basketry classes are for sewists who are familiar and comfortable with coiled rope basketry, and who wish to extend their skills and techniques in their own custom creations.

Advanced Basketry: $95
