Basket Weaving Workshop: Functional Reed Baskets on Saturday June 8 at 10am

By: POST

$ 60.00

Hosted by POST + Angela Eastman of Flag Mountain Jewelry


Saturday June 8th, 2019 from 10:00am to 2:00pm


Prepare to get absolutely obsessed with basket weaving!


The basics of basket making will be introduced, tried and tested during this 4 hour hands-on workshop. Join Angela as she shares traditional techniques for creating small functional vessels from basketry reed with options for individuality and creative twists. Each student should expect to leave with a basket and instructional handout so that they may undoubtedly continue making and filling their homes with these gorgeous handmade objects.


This process can get a little wet. Students are advised to wear clothes they don't mind getting dirty. Aprons will also be made available for the duration of the workshop. All materials will be included. 



About The Instructor:


Angela Eastman is a visual artist and the jeweler behind Flag Mountain Jewelry. She moved to Detroit from North Carolina 3 years ago to study sculpture at Cranbrook Academy of Art, and fell in love with the city and its vibrant arts community. She lives in Hamtramck, where she can be found designing jewelry, baking biscuits, and dreaming of summer bike rides.
