Are you interested in exploring the beautiful artistry of basket making? But not just one style of basket … how about 3 over 3 months?

Join Carmen Bohn of Ply Studio to make three styles of basket this fall. 

Part 1: Cord & Yarn. September 29th from 6:30-9:30pmEDT

Part 2: Coiled Textile. October 20th from 6:30-9:30pmEDT

Part 3: Crocheted Rope. November 17th from 6:30-9:30pmEST

If you register for each separately you pay $100 for each. If you register for all 3 as part of the series, save $35 and pay $265.

By the end of each workshop, you will be able to …

  • Effectively utilize all the supplies, tools and techniques needed to make the basket in question;
  • Take home a finished (or nearly finished) vessel to use for any number of purposes;
  • Claim that you spent an evening doing something really fun, in a great (and safe!) environment with really awesome people;
  • Join my club of ‘slightly obsessed’ basket makers; and,
  • Show off your mad basket making skills to all your friends! (Believe me, they’ll want to make them, too!)

Each of these workshops is beginner-friendly. And while there are no prerequisites for these workshops - just an interest in learning something new or building on some beginner skills you already have - we will share some super short video tutorials with you in advance of the workshop so that we can all start on the same page.

Your registration fee includes:

  • 9+ hours of personalized instruction, plus support before and after each session;
  • All supplies to complete each month’s project (includes macrame cord/rope, yarn, textiles, thread plus the use of scissors, darning and tapestry needles and crochet hooks while at each workshop);
  • A written pattern each month (and video tutorials to follow the workshop and keep you going); and,
  • A boredom busting good time and something to look forward to for 3 months in a row! Ply Studio workshops are always engaging and we promise that you will have fun.

Maximum number of participants per workshop: 8
