Artist Elizabeth Bear will guide attendees through the process of creating beautiful, fragrant and sustainable pieces of artwork at this intimate workshop.

“A basket reflects the person who makes it…There’s no machine that can make a basket,” states Ms. Bear.

Just bring sharp scissors, imagination and a bagged lunch, as Ms. Bear provides all materials and her masterful insight. Each participant will make their own basket and start a second basket to work on at home. Workshop also includes a lecture on sustainable harvesting and tree kindness.

Workshop is $100 for Garden members / $130 for non-members. Pre-registration required. For more information, photos, and to register, contact education@slobg.org
