Local fiber and basket artist Cricket Rose is bringing three new creative workshops to the Price Center beginning Oct. 12. Each workshop will consist of two, four-hour sessions held on consecutive Wednesdays and Fridays. Each workshop will focus on a separate type of basket weaving and all materials will be provided. All three workshops require advance registration and payment of a $35 fee.
“This series of workshops is a nice compliment to the ongoing heritage arts practiced monthly at the Center and the recent one-off workshops we’ve hosted with LifeLong Learning smtx,” said Clay DeStefano, executive director. “Folks seem to like the short-term commitment mixed with ability to learn a new creative skill and walk away with a finished product.”
Bean Pot with Handle (example shown at right) will focus on a Colonial style design and take place on Oct. 10 and 12 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Cherokee-style Double Wall Bowl (example shown at left) will focus on a native design and take place on Nov. 7 and 9 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Swirling Star Bowl (example shown at right) will focus on a Central American style design and take place on Dec. 12 and 14 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
