Coiled Basketry with Jenn Gooch

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Coiling is an ancient tradition for building baskets out of natural and recycled materials. We’ll learn basic stitching and design techniques to create baskets that are great for organizing, decoration, and giving gifts of love! This is a great summer-time craft for keeping in a beach bag or keeping your hands busy while you marathon your favorite show.
