Class #27 – Haida Bottle
Students will learn traditional Haida weave techniques and designs using finely, hand prepared Alaskan yellow and western red cedar from Thorne Bay, AK. Cobalt blue spray bottles are include or choose from a selection of similar sized and varied shapes offered by the instructor. You will learn a square to round start, triple twine, fish eye (open weave/cross warp) and a sweet finish at the top! Several colors will be available to accent the weave at the top as an option. Twining experience is a MUST. Waxed linen twining experience is a great base to learn from.
