Exquisite hand-thrown pottery bowls act as the base for creative and free-form weaving. Using dyed and natural reed, you will construct your basket with twining and tapestry techniques. Rims will be discussed. Some embellishments will be available. The instructor urges you to bring feathers, beads, buttons, and other items along to personalize your basket. No two pieces of pottery are alike and all are unique. Bowls vary in size but can be 3-4” wide, 4- 6” high, and 4-6” in diameter.
Murray Hill Weaving is Jean Reed’s dream come true – resulting from her love of basketry, and weaving for over 45 years. Basketry took a natural turn into chair seating and other types of art. Located at 685 Murray Hill Road, Hill, NH, the heart of New England, Jean teaches an array of classes in her shop and around the country. You’ll always find talented artists from all over the world sharing their knowledge and skills with students at MHW. Visit me at www.MurrayHillWeaving.com.
Jean has taught for the NH League of Craftsmen, as well conventions in Michigan, North Carolina, and Northeast Basketmakers Guild. She also offers a wide variety of classes at the NH League of Craftsmen, Stowe Basketry Convention, and Fletcher Farm.
