Banana Factory Arts Center
One Day Workshop
Sunday, November 28 | 1-3 p.m.
This basic children’s class will teach the 3 basic steps to continuous weaving. Children will have a choice of a 3″, 4″ or 6″ base. They will learn how to attach the stakes to the base with a locking stitch. Then using the holiday colors of their choice, the sides will be woven, the beads added and the top of the weaving tucked. This fun class will end with a cute basket to be used at home.
Debbi has been basket weaving for over 30 years, and working with children for 48. Most recently she has been teaching children the basics of basket weaving for 18 years. Spring and fall weekends finds Debbi leading heritage worships for children 6 years and older, making basic baskets. In addition, she teaches all 3 levels of 4-H basketry to 4-H groups. Girl Scouting holds a special place in her heart, as she creates weaving programs and workshops for Juniors, Cadettes and Seniors at camps and in troops. She especially enjoys sharing her expertise with all levels of weavers who want to be challenged and enjoy creating a useful piece of art. Deb has taught at the Hamburg Arts Alliance ( 6 years), Salem Evangelical Congregational Church ( 3 years), Northwestern Lehigh School District Community Education Program (eight years) and now at the Banana Factory for 13 years. Debbi has also designed a day camp basket weaving program and an intensive basket weaving program at G.S. resident camp and the Banana Factory summer day camp program.
