Fringed Bark Spiral Basket Making

Tuesday Jul 1, 2014 Legacy Learning Boone River Valley
2490 Briggs Woods Rd.
Webster City

Originally from Jewell, Peggie Wilcox, one of the nation's basket makers, uses natural materials she harvests herself, to create stunning baskets. Her works are exhibited throughtout the country, mostly recently shown at the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian Institute.  

On the first day, students will create a small basket and learn basic techniques. Participants will begin with this unique basket by laying out a square Cedar bark base and start the twining with Iris leaves. After the upset, they will work up the sides doing a continuous sprial with outer bark plaiting and Iris leaf twining. Then design options will be added such as building up one high side or changing materials for color variation. The finish includes a "ruff" of Cedar Bark fringe. Plant materials will be discussed. Approximate size: 4 - 5" tall by 3" diameter.

Students are encouraged to come back for the second and third days as they will focus on more challenging basketss for students who have some experience with weaving or who have taken the first day class.

8 a.m. to 4 p.m. $100 (includes materials).
