Willow Bark Wall Pouch

July 6 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

with Joan Carrigan

Willow bark is a lovely material for basket weaving and this project is a perfect way to show it off.  We will be weaving this variation of a point pouch designed to hang on the wall to hold utensils or a flower arrangement. Along with the plaited designs using willow bark we will also use locally foraged materials for twining patterns. Discussion and demonstrations will cover how to harvest and prepare these locally foraged materials.

Tool list: sharp scissors, 12" ruler, soft measuring tape, spray bottle, an old towel.

Fees: HCP Members $120/Non-Members $140
