Nantucket Style Basket Workshop
September 17 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$100.00
Instructor: Kathy Petronzio
Kathy started weaving in a local class while living in South Carolina, and very quickly fell in love with basketry. She quickly expanded her education while in Japan on deployment with her husband and sons; she was invited to study with local master weavers and soon began actively teaching classes. She is influenced by her love and intricacy of Japanese basketry as well as the beauty, tradition and usefulness of Nantucket and Shaker basketry. She has and continues to exhibit in shows across the Northeastern United States, both group and juried art exhibits and teaches in Massachusetts, Virginia and North Carolina.
Join instructor Kathy in the Toolshed to weave your very own bejeweled Nantucket basket! The bejeweled Nantucket is a traditional basket woven with Hamburg cane. The fun comes when you finish the rim with a fun trim. This class is appropriate for all levels. This is a long workshop so there is a built in break, please bring lunch! Registration closes Sep 14.
**Please bring sharp scissors, a small bucket for water, an old towel, a small awl and pencil to class.**
