Ash Basket Weaving with Brendan Gaffney

April 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Ash Weaving with Brendan Gaffney

Using freshly pounded and dressed ash splints, students will learn the basics of constructing a “square-to-round” basket, a simple project and introduction to the concepts and material knowledge of weaving with wood splints. Along the way, we’ll make simple rims and handles, also from ash, and learn the possibilities of green wood bending, patterned weaving and what wood splint can do with a little work and knowledge.

Recommended Tools

  • Sharp Sloyd Knife
  • Scissors
  • 12-in Ruler

Some tools will be available if you don’t have them. This is a two part class, taking place all day Sunday.
