I specialize in creating custom programs for your community. Through survival skills, homesteading skills, hands on experiences and guided adventures, you will gain a greater connection with self, others, and the earth.
I will travel and teach groups of people in your own communities to bring knowledge to people who might not be able to travel to attend classes other places. I am excited to build custom courses and share with others how to deepen their connection with self, others, and the earth.
Below are current course offerings.
Ribbed Basket Making Workshop
Basket making is an age old skill, remnants of baskets have been dated back 10,000-20,000 years ago! Making a basket and using it is a very primal activity. In this class you will be learning the techniques of a ribbed basket using flat cane. The same principles you learn with the cane can be used with other natural materials.
A Ribbed Basket, also called an egg basket or melon basket, is a type of basket that is characterized by the use of a ‘gods-eye’ to weave together two hoops to become the handle and rim. Ribs, thin sticks, are placed into the gods-eye to give the form to the basket. Lastly, thin flexible material is woven back and forth through the ribs to create the container of your basket.
Class is 6 hours (can be shortened to a 3 hr workshop if a small basket is made instead of a large basket)
Open to ages 12 and older.
All materials are supplied.
