By popular request, this fun class is back!  If you want to try your hand at a free-form, sculptural piece of basketry, this class is for you.  In this workshop, we will be using sea grass with a variety of materials, among them driftwood, gourds and gourd pieces, found objects from land and sea, ribbon, beads, and many other things to create a truly unique piece of art.  It helps to have some experience in coiling.
