Postponed - Due to the current environment, and the Gallery's continued dedication to keeping staff and patrons safe, this workshop has been postponed until further notice. Please check back for a future date. Thank you for your understanding.

Have you ever wanted to know what it is like to weave a basket, even just for the day? In this one-day workshop, you can have the opportunity to learn the technique of basket weaving to create your own basket. No experience needed.

Join Bryan Gallery and basket weaver, Linda Lomasney, as you explore the exciting and fun form of art making.

About the instructor:

Linda Lomasney, of Deedas’ Baskets, is a native Vermonter, and comes from a long line of artistic women. She brings with her over 30 years of experience in the skill of weaving baskets. Linda’s baskets are made with reed, a sustainable product, wooden bases, handles, accent colors, decorative pieces, maple strips, and more to complete the basket.

The four hour, one-day workshop will include the opportunity to create your own reed basket, with a hands-on demonstration/instruction for each participant throughout the process. Each participant will walk away with your very own one-of-a-kind product at the end of class, made by you.
