“Create Foraging Baskets” with Kathy Karbo
Plan now to join Kathy Karbo at Trail’s End Art Studio to make foraging baskets. The workshop will take place from 10:00-2:00 on Saturday, May 21. No experience needed and all materials will be provided. Kathy brings her incredible energy, creativity, experience and skill as an instructor to each learning opportunity. Don’t miss this one.
Kathy got started in basketry when she lived in historic Montclair, New Jersey. She became a docent at the Israel Crane House and studied colonial crafts. At a Fall Festival, she sat at a basketmaker’s knee during demonstrations. With this expert help, she began making baskets. The experience changed Kathy’s life and she found herself weaving up to 16 hours a day.
Foraging baskets grow from long traditions of basket making. Using a wide variety of materials that can include corrugated cardboard, twine, buttons, paint, magazine clippings and colored papers, the basket maker creates beautiful containers. The resulting baskets can become dried flower holders, gifts, part of home decor, or a host of other uses as the basket maker sees the unlimited possibilities.
To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org The cost for the workshop will be $50 for Trail’s End members and $55 for non- members. Plan to bring a sack lunch or shop in nearby Gearhart for carry out items. Sign up now and prepare for a joyous day of creating.
