May workshop with Joan Carrigan

British Columbian basketmaker Joan Carrigan taught us to weave a cell phone pouch using the beautiful natural materials of the Pacific Northwest. Joan lead the workshop in a discussion of gathering and preparation of the materials we would use: red and yellow cedar, willow bark, sedge and beargrass. She encouraged us to create a unique pouch incorporating a variety of the barks and grasses using a variety of techniques, including twining and plaiting.
