  • This workshop is part of a new 21 Acres Guest Artist Series. We are pleased to make our space available to a handful of local artists to teach their creative classes. 

    Spend the day getting to know willow – from tree to basket. You’ll start with peeling bark from fresh willow foraged from the 21 Acres farm. Then you’ll prepare dried willow bark to create beautiful and strong wearable art and a diagonally plaited basket. 


    You’ll take home one pair of earrings with the accent beads of your choice, a bracelet made to fit, and your basket. Plus your fresh peeled bark!

    No experience needed.

    Minimum age 12 (with accompanying adult). Sack lunch encouraged.

    Workshop Fee: $125*

She honors the cultural significance of farms, which historically have provided much more than food, including baskets, trellises, medicine, wool, and more. Her upcoming classes will showcase a variety of unique weaving projects, leveraging some plants that you’ll see here on the farm.
