Black Ash Net Basket

May 4 and 5 9:00 am - 4:00 pm (1 hour lunch break)        

           Instructor: Liandra Skenandore

           Cost: $175  + $65 material fee paid to instructor on day of class

            (Workshop size max. 10)

           Class will be held at a small farm 15 minutes south of Waukesha, WI

Black ash net baskets are beautiful vessels with their gorgeous “net-like” looking open weave pattern. They are wonderful holders of fabric, fruit, fiber, and other goods and foods. These baskets are also stunning when hung up on the wall or used as a statement table piece.

 

In this class, students will prepare their base and weaver pieces for their net basket by cutting and knife-scraping black ash splint material that has already been hand-pounded off of a black ash log. Students will then weave the basket in the checkerwork weave pattern for the base and use the hexagon weave pattern for the walls. Students will learn how to finish this basket by tucking in the uprights and preparing their rim and lashing elements which will be fitted and secured onto the basket body.

 

A log pounding and splint splitting demonstration will be done where students can participate in the intricate process of attaining black ash splint material for basketry. Students will also learn about Oneida and Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) traditions and history of black ash basket weaving. A display table of baskets and basket books will be available for students to interact with.

 

No prior basket weaving experience is required. Some hand strength and finger dexterity are necessary as we will be working with scissors and a knife to prepare all the materials for the basket.
