Basket-Woven Vessels with Angela Eastman
In this two-day workshop on Saturday and Sunday, March 25–26, 10 am–3 pm, participants harvest and process invasive vines from the Museum Park, then learn weaving techniques to create basket-woven vessels. This process opens up a conversation about the intersection of ecological responsibility, creative placemaking, and heritage crafts.
