How to Survive Workshop: Basket Weaving with Baling Straps
9 - 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7Reynolds Room
Since 2012, Hawai'i-based artist Gaye Chan has foraged plastic baling straps and developed a weaving technique to make containers while learning a basic skill practiced around the globe: basket-making. Chan’s basketmaking practice extends the life of an otherwise single-use material through craft and skill sharing. Join us for a basket-making workshop for adults and mature teens led by museum staff trained in Chan’s technique.
Materials provided. Space is limited, registration required. Free.
Note: Can’t make this session? This workshop is part of a series of basket-making workshops, in connection with our exhibition, How to Survive. Keep an eye out for future dates.
