Willow Skeining Basket Class

Spiral Weave

Join Bill Roeder, for a class in traditional German skeined willow basketry at the Amana Arts Guild, 1210 G St, High Amana, IA 52203

This 4 inch diameter piece is a great beginning project, as well as for those with weaving experience, want- ing to learn about tradi- tional German skeined wil- low. The basket teaches a number of traditional techniques and includes a foot and wrapped rim. If you are a speedy weaver, you may do a braided rim, too!

The class will be taught in the European tradition. You will learn to prepare your own materials from willows I provide. Students will be using my skeining benches so will only need to provide some basic tools -small awls, sharp small knives, small water containers. I do have some tools that may be used if yours are not properly sized. (More details will be sent upon registration and you are free to call with questions.)

Students must be capable of 8 hrs/day intensive weaving and pulling skeins. July 16 – 20, 2018

Class Fee: $500 (includes tool use) Materials Fee: $50 for willow (limit 8 students)

Please send non-refundable registration fee of $150 to hold your place by June 1 to: Bill Roeder 8220 State Ave Marysville, Wa 98270

If using credit card, please call (423-215-2693) to give me info.
