Full class description: Rediscover the natural world and connect with your ancestors by learning to weave with local found materials such as vines, leaves, branches, grasses, flower stems, tree and shrub prunings, and any natural material you can find in your garden or fields! Across all cultures throughout human history, people have created shelters, clothing, storage vessels and more using the materials around them. In this workshop we will explore the twining technique and a very ancient weaving process using a simple loom that will be provided. Possible projects include hats, baskets, wall hangings, placemats, table runners, floor mats, window shades and more. Join us to become more aware of our environment as a source of materials, inspiration, and inquiry!
