Willow Frame Tray Workshop

May 27, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

with Joan Carrigan

This woven tray or platter utilizes willow for the frame and willow bark for the weaving. Prepared willow frames will be available for the class, yet each participant will learn the process of making one which they can keep for future use. Dyed cane will be used for the spokes which are attached to the frame at one end. Design and weaving variations will be presented.

Please add your name to the interest list if the class is full. If we have enough interest we may run an additional class on Saturday May 26.

HCP Members $120
Non Members $140
