This class is a perfect introduction to weaving, and ideal for beginners and children (8 yrs. and up). Participants will complete one basket (pencil holder) from materials and tools supplied. This is a great activity for parent/adult with child/children.
Heidi’s career in the art world started when in April of 1997, a course in basket weaving was offered here at Evergreen. Since then, Heidi has traveled the country and attended a number of weaving workshops with well-known artists. She participates in juried shows and exhibits in five states. In the past years, she has grown from assimilating the basics to creating works of art.
Her beginning was in fine and traditional wicker basketry, and she now weaves with cedar bark, white and black ash, cane, paper, leather, sweet grass, as well as waxed linen, waxed sinew, hand spun yarn, and many more. Heidi likes to combine natural materials with beautiful pieces created by a potter or with hand-crafted beads. She also likes to add treasures found in nature. Heidi delights in watching her creativity unfold through her weaving. For more information about Heidi and her woven sculptures, visit: http://www.heidiwetzel.com/
