In this weekend workshop, students will work to weave beautiful handled baskets, perfect for gathering spring produce. Students will learn to construct a traditional basket with a circular base, rounded or sharp angled upsets, a choice of side weave and a choice of handle(s). Participants can expect to finish the class with a beautiful and sturdy woven willow basket.
This course is available to all participants, no prior basket or weaving experience necessary. Willow can be a challenge to work with, and physically engaging, this class may be difficult for a person with hand issues. The class runs from 9am-5pm each day with an hour lunch break.
Workshop fee includes all materials($50 material fee) and lunch from the farm both days.
Jes Clark (they/them) is the farmer and weaver at Willow Vale Farm in Stanfordville, NY. Jes weaves traditional and contemporary functional pieces and the basket forms created are a result of their conversation with each stick of willow. All of their willow is grown without pesticides using regenerative practices and with loving care. Jes has been teaching weaving since 2018 and has taught hundreds of students ranging from absolute beginners to experienced weavers looking to refine their craft. They have taught at the Stowe Basketry Festival, for the Northeast Basketmakers Guild, at the New York Botanical Garden just to name a few, and also privately in one-on-one tutorials.
