Willow Weaving Retreat on the Wheaton

with Shiela Alexandrovich


Would you like to spend a weekend making willow baskets with eight other basket makers? Can you make a basket on your own, but would like to improve or expand on what you know? How about two days, on a farm, eating seasonal, local food, living simple, and outside?

I would like to offer a weekend to work together with our hands, to share company and skills and to eat together. Go to the river, sit, walk, weave. No schedule, no class.

I will be available for mentoring, but this is not a workshop.

A holiday with a very small footprint and time set aside for basket making.
