Basketry technique with wire

Many of our members go to conferences to network and take classes in new but still fiber related techniques. Over the years our members have migrated from strictly using fiber to using other media in a fiber way. This is why visitors will see beading, wire, thread, paper, painted canvas, etc in the gallery. Members crochet and knit with wire as well as thread for example.

Today at the Bead and Button conference was a perfect example of using a non-fiber material in a fiber technique. The class was using wire for a basketry focal piece for a necklace. Whether using reed or wire for your end result, it is still basketry, using an age old process.
