Basket Weaving Workshop
- THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL - Basket weaving is a seasonal art that relies on the environment to provide the materials necessary in its own time and season. Since the emerald ash borer is threatening the population of black ash, Kelly Jean Church has become an advocate and educator to the public for the trees and her native art. Her workshop will be a combination of traditional basket weaving and lessons on what we can do to help mitigate the devastation from the emerald ash borer. In addition to the lessons learned, workshop participants will create their own basket. Image is representative, but not identical to the workshop project.
