Join us for Creative Coiling with Liz Train

In this class we will explore a number of coiling techniques to create baskets or creative sculptural fiber art.

Coiling is a traditional basketmaking technique used for centuries by countless numbers of cultures. Coiled baskets are created by wrapping a yarn or other fiber around a core element. This technique can be used to craft functional baskets, wall hangings or fiber sculptures. Coils may also be used to enhance weavings or other fiber art with three dimensional areas. 

Creative Coiling is open to all. No prior experience is necessary.

There will be an additional $15 supply fee payable to the instructor which includes: a basketry core and yarn.

What to Bring:

  • $15 supply fee
  • Notebook, sketchbook or binder
  • Pencil or pen
  • Scissors
  • As class progresses students may wish to incorporate their own personal items, yarns etc. into their work.
