Basketry Into Woodturning with Janine Wang

Explore experimental basketwork make on turned or found wooden bowls. We will first focus on foundational twining and random weave basketry techniques by creating a small, round basket/bowl together. Then we’ll apply that to design our own unique bowls. You will leave class with both a craft technique and an understanding of the design sensibilities involved in combining the two mediums. You are encouraged to bring in your own found wooden bowls, and a variety will be available for experimentation. Beginner and Beyond

Janine began making furniture while studying architecture at the Cooper Union, and found herself much more drawn to building than the planning of building. She went on to pursue an MFA in furniture design from the Rhode Island School of Design, and has since exhibited with the Center for Art in Wood, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Wharton Esherick Museum, the American Association of Woodturners Gallery of Wood Art, Appalachian Center for Craft, AAW International Woodturning Symposium, Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, and the State Museum of Pennsylvania.
