Making a Ribbed Basket (Fall 2023 HandWorks Festival)
This all-day workshop will focus on making a ribbed basket in the Appalachian tradition. Melon, egg, and options for other gathering baskets will be offered. An assortment of colored reed and dyeing processes will be available. No previous experience is necessary. All will be encouraged! Meet the Artist Bob Sattler has been making baskets for about 40 years. He has taught art in public schools and community programs for more than that. Growing up in the Midwest, he learned the craft from a few great mentors.
