We had a wonderful time at the 10th Anniversary Headwaters Basketry Workshop in Bemidji, MN over the weekend of April 16, 17 & 18th. The attendance was a bit lower than previous years, but everyone had a great time. Take a look at the classes I taught, one new seatweaving stool and two antler baskets. http://www.WickerWoman.com/teaching.html
Joy Parker, birch bark basketmaker and teacher was the featured speaker at Saturday’s dinner banquet. She brought several samples of her work, including a hat, backpack, shoes and several traditional utilitarian baskets and then taught a short class.
The theme was the Year of the Troll, so we had lots of fun with that. Everyone received a troll, (wonder what they go for on eBay?), heard the history of trolls, and were invited to dress up their troll at a class after the dinner. Wonderful door prizes from several Cane & Basket Suppliers featured on my website, terrific International food, nice weather, and great renewals of friendships between all!
