“My horsehair baskets are contemporary in nature and traditional in materials.” - Jane Chavez

Learn the art of horsehair basket weaving, influenced by antiquity and varied cultures. Initially weaving using pine needles, Jane turned to horsehair as the longer strands afforded her with even more opportunities for creativity. For over 20 years she has been using her basketry to tell unique stories and preserve a historic art form. This one-day workshop will provide insight into the foundation of basket weaving, as well as its intricate nature. This class is for beginners, supplies included.
