In this two day workshop for intermediate to advanced weavers, you will work with the fitching technique to create your own unique medium size basket.
The open nature of a fitched basket is very attractive and in this workshop you will learn the fitching technique applied to the side of the basket.
Choices to explore and/or practice different designs and techniques (in addition to the above mentioned fitching) such as fitched round or oval base, twined round base, catalan oval base will depend on the weaver's level of experience.
As the focus of this workshop is to learn/work on the fitching technique, we will look at and discuss different combinations of fitching and other techniques. This will allow you to decide the overall design of your basket.
For example, if this is your first introduction to fitching, you may want to make the basket on a traditional twined round base or an oval catalan base. This will allow you to focus on just the fitching and not a number of additional techniques needed when the base of the basket is fitched.
On the other hand, if you have experience fitching, you may want to learn to fitch the base and then scalloming the stakes for fitching the side of the basket as well.
