Sign up with your young person and make art together. Each adult will bring one 10 year old or older for a meaningful art experience together. I will incorporate some art history, we’ll explore some techniques and ideas, then we’ll roll up our sleeves and make some art! There will be moments where you work collaboratively, as well as times where you each make your own piece. Some of the things we do will make lovely holiday gifts. Share the fun of making art with a young person you love.
So-called "Oriental" or round-leafed bittersweet is a creeping vine with inedible berries that is considered invasive in North A.m.erica. Frustrating to gardeners and arborists, and not readily favored by birds, bittersweet is a largely useless bane on wild land. We can use traditional harvesting techniques to tend Asian bittersweet in the wild: harvesting material for baskets while controlling and suppressing future da.m.aging growth. We will cover identification, responsible collection, materials processing and storage, and creation, including the basics of stake-and-strand twining and weaving. We will shoot for a basket about 8-inches wide and 4-inches deep. Price includes all required tools and materials. No discounts.
