Artist: Bekka Palmer, hello@bekkapalmer.com

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.
