Learn the art of basket weaving with Joan Carrigan, experienced instructor and artist. Watercolour paper is very strong and durable and offers endless opportunities for the basket maker. In this workshop, we will be plaiting with ¼” wide pre-painted watercolour paper creating an attractive decorative vase with curl embellishments. Please bring sharp scissors, a ruler, and a flat screwdriver. Variations of shaping and curl embellishments will be on hand for participants to choose their own design.

Joan studied Fine Art and Art History at the University of Guelph and her love of history has fuelled her research in traditional techniques. Her background in fine art has fuelled her enthusiasm for the sculptural and creative potentials that the medium offers.
