NWBW Retreat 2007 willow basket class

The Northwest Basket Weavers Guild has mailed out the registration information for the annual Spring Retreat. The Retreat is scheduled for March 24-28,2010 at the Pilgrim Firs Conference Center in Port Orchard, WA. There are 43 proposed classes to chose from as well as the opportunity to bring other projects for the open weaving area. This year’s featured teacher is Cass Schorsch who will be sharing her bark basketry techniques. She will also be presenting a slide show on Friday evening before the Gallery Gala.

As I mentioned in a previous post, Katherine Lewis will be teaching one two day willow basketry class at the Retreat. Katherine’s class is “Introduction to fitching” for intermediate weavers. You must be a member of the Guild to participate in the Retreat. All the information is available in the brochure which you can see at the Guild website, including color photos of the class baskets.
