Students in Fibers 1 have been exploring recycling materials
into basketry forms. Last week they
learned how to do plaiting with newspaper, and this week are doing a knotless
netting technique with plastic bags that have been turned into “plarn”.
After learning four traditional basketry techniques of
plaiting, netting, coiling, and twining, each student will create a sculptural
project that utilizes one of these techniques.
Stay tuned for images of finished projects in a few weeks!
