There will be two basketry sessions on Saturday, March 23.
In Beginner Basketry, participants will learn the basics of coiled rope basketry by designing and constructing their own rope bowls at The Mountain Thread Company. Class includes heavy duty needles, 20 yards of 100% cotton solid braid rope, group and individualized instruction, and handouts. This class is from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
In Intermediate Basketry, participants will review all the basic techniques and learn how to work with larger sizes, add handles, calculate rope usage, and more. Class includes heavy duty needles, 40 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. This class is from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.
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.
Beginner Basketry: $45
Intermediate Basketry: $55
