Thursday, July 25, 2019 – 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM – 8 Seats Available

Spend a few creative hours with us to make this Pottery Bowl Basket with instructor and League-juried artist, Jean Reed.

Exquisite hand thrown pottery bowls will act as the base for your art project.  This is a free-form type of weaving, done with dyed and natural reed, sea grasses, and fibers. You will construct your basket with twining and tapestry techniques. Rims will be discussed. Some embellishments will be available. Students are urged to bring feathers, beads, buttons, and other items along to personalize their basket. No two pieces of pottery are alike and all are unique. No previous weaving experience is needed.

Students will need to bring a hand towel, scissors, a spray bottle, and a bagged lunch.
