Learn how to weave around a stone/agate/cabochon with pine needles as you start to form a small, free-formed basket. What do you want your mini-basket to look like? Let the center piece guide the way as the basket takes shape. This can be labor intensive, as to the time it takes to weave, but it is also very relaxing. Come and enjoy learning how to weave!

Students will learn how to prepare a stone base, basic weaving techniques, how to add beads, close coiling ,and shaping a form.

About the Instructor: Janice Reich

My journey into art began late in life but with a big BAM! In 2002, in northern California, I encountered my first gourd….a Mayan drum. After seeing other art objects from gourds my interest grew in this odd, dried plant. This was the beginning of a new chapter in my life and I had an unquenchable desire to express myself in a new environment. I found art! Fascinated with all the different aspects of how a gourd can be transformed I started my education through books and classes. My talent flourished and my passion as an artist was quickly reinforced with multiple awards.

My art takes on the natural form of the gourd that then becomes intertwined with other components. Each shape gives me inspiration for a unique design – with surprises along the way.

I am very proud to offer a unique art form from such a natural medium.
