Kudzu Basket Weaving: Vessels of Place with Angela Eastman

Chapel Hill artist Angela Eastman demonstrates techniques and principles of basket weaving using kudzu. Through learning about basketmaking with this invasive species, the class examines history, cultural traditions, and ecological impact.

This workshop begins with a presentation on basketry as a historical and contemporary connector to place, followed by a demonstration of kudzu preparation and basket weaving. At the end participants have a chance to weave their own small form from prepared kudzu vines.
