Experimental basketry and nest making
With visiting artist Martha Orbach 

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult

Weave, tangle, knot, interlace – these are some of the most universal ways of building structures, vessels, and shelter. They are modes of construction used by multiple species and cultures to create resilient, site specific, seasonal structures. Join visiting artist Martha Orbach for this workshop and try some simple basketry and weaving techniques. We will experiment with what we can make using these processes and you will create your own or a collaborative structure.

Refreshments are included
