Weave Beautiful Baskets with Paper

Taught by: Ruth Boland

Baskets will be woven from 140lb water color paper, rough press.  Students will paint their own materials using acrylic paint, and will cut the material into stakes and weavers using a pasta maker. Painting techniques, equipment use and color theory will be discussed.

Each student will make two baskets, choosing their own colors.  The first will be a small cathead where techniques associated with working with paper, as well as basic basket making techniques, will be introduced.  The second basket can be more involved as skills and time allow.  Some students will choose to weave a basket with a pattern, others will choose to continue to experiment with color.

This class is appropriate for beginner weavers as well as those with more experience.
