In the Sweet Fields of Grass and Glass – Naomi Smith

Come and join Tulip Tree Needlearts in a 2-day class with Naomi Smith – Sept 14 and 15, 2022

This workshop takes a step into the past. The art of sewing sweetgrass together into all manner of things is something the Great Lakes people were accustomed to. This session focuses on the basics of creating a sweetgrass basket with a beadwork top. Participants will create a beaded design on the lid of their base and learn how to work with Sweetgrass. In addition to basket making methods, raised beading techniques will be explored.

Skill level: All
Size: 13 x 9 cm (5 x 3.5 inches)
