Spiralling Round: Hand Coiled Basket Workshop with Evelyn Ward – February 11th 9-11:30am SOLD OUT

Cost: $50 plus HST

In this class you will learn to hand coil a fibre basket; how to start, shape and finish a basic small basket and how to use a variety of materials for core and wrapping. Once mastered this simple technique can lead to marvelous weaving opportunities.

Studies have explored the relationship between creativity and well-being: the benefits of the mesmeric immersion in crafts creating states of contentment and focus. Come and experience this form of meditation with your hands and heart.

The basket has been around for millennia. The spiral is integral to the coiled basket. Cultural anthropologist Angeles Arrien in her book about the five universal shapes says, “The spiral symbolizes the process of growth and evolution. It is a process of coming to the same point again and again, but as a different level, so that everything is seen in a new light.”

Please note that there are no refunds for workshops. A credit will be given for cancellations received 48 hours before the start of the Workshop.
