Woven Baskets by Sally Metcalf presented by Sun Valley Museum of Art
Adult Classes


with Sally Metcalf

Tuesday, June 30, 2020 - 10:00 AM


Basket making is a meditation as well as an art form. Basketry is one of the oldest known crafts, dating back more than ten thousand years.

In this class you will learn and use the twining technique to make either a 2” diameter plate or a little round box, just the right size for a ring. A lid can be made out of class. The material we use will be 4 and 7 ply waxed linen, in multitude of beautiful colors. One of the joys of crafting with this material is watching its transformation from natural substance to an art piece.

This class takes place Tue–Thu, June 30, July 1 & 2, from 10am–3pm.

Medium: Fiber

Age and ability: 16 yrs. and older, beginners welcome

About the Instructor:

A master in fine arts, Sally has been drawn to basketry for its quiet contemplative quality as well as a myriad of colors and patterns, and organic shapes. She has won numerous awards for her work, as well as having her baskets published in six books on basketry. She gets enormous joy from teaching others this craft. She got interested in basketry over 25 years ago while observing bird nests and twisted bark from fallen trees, possibly the same way early basket makers were influenced.
