Join artist Bekka Palmer for the meditative basket making workshop you didn’t know you needed (but trust us… you need it). In this workshop, you will learn the art of making a coiled basket. You will learn that basket making can become a form of meditation and ultimately you will walk away with more than just a basket. You’ll need to come prepared to use both hands and have an open mind as to how this craft can by rhythmic and relaxing. You don’t need any previous experience in baskets or crafts in general, but this work is not for the impatient. You’ll take away a partially complete basket and the materials to finish it. This is a great workshop for anyone that might identify as an introvert as chatting with strangers won’t be the main focus of the day (but of course all are welcome and encouraged to come).
All materials and supplies included. The class will run about 3 hours, but mostly likely you will not complete your basket in that time, however you will be able to take home all of the tools and supplies you need to complete it.
Carry handmade on-the-go! Upgrade your daily travel style with a custom wallet, complete with your hand-stamped initials. This chic accessory carries credits cards, business cards, cash – even a phone! Make it for yourself or as a gift.

About Luchiya Vavouliotis:
Luchiya was born and raised in the Bulgarian city of Plovdiv. Ever since she can remember, she was intrigued by watching her grandmother create the most beautiful crochet lace. As a result, Luchiya developed a deep respect and appreciation for everything handcrafted, as well as a strong desire to be part of that process.
After studying Journalism, her rebellious nature and curiosity for everything glamorous eventually led Luchiya to New York City. There, she had the opportunity to work for some of the most famous fashion brands in the world: Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Bottega Veneta, and Hermès.
The need to express herself through fine jewelry led her to the study of jewelry-making throughout the centuries in order to acquire the necessary craftsmanship and be able to realize her creative vision. Thus her new adventure, Dani and the Rings, was born.
Meet jewelry designer Marina Pecoraro and watch her work while you shop her collection on Tuesday, October 11th! Marina will be demonstrating how she makes her signature wire-wrapped rings, and each customer will receive one with any purchase - made there and customized on the spot!
