Easy Coil Baskets| March 12, 2021

In this fun workshop, not only will you create a beautiful basket with the coiling technique, but you just might find yourself a bit more centered and calmer. Judith says, “This class requires you to be very present and focused and in doing so, you become more relaxed.”

Various twines, yarns, embroidery thread, cords and other materials allow for a great variety of looks including non-traditional shapes. Put your unique twist on this original basket creation. Coiling projects can be carried and worked on anywhere.
