This small basket is a great introduction to the art of basket-making. It can be filled with candy or small items and hung on a tree or doorknob. Students will have a choice of several reed and ribbon color combinations to create their unique basket. The workshop will last 1.5 hours and materials will be provided. Please bring sharp scissors.
Kimberley Harding creates sculptural and installation works using basketry and other fiber techniques. Recently relocated to Portland, ME, Harding has exhibited in numerous galleries and sites in the Greater Boston area, Eastern and Central Massachusetts, and online. She likes to consider interior and exterior spaces, the hidden and the revealed, the personal and the societal in her work. She began collaborating with fellow Arlington, MA artist Laurie Bogdan in 2020, producing installations for the two most recent Art Rambles in Concord, MA, and at Tower Hill Botanic Gardens. You can find out more about Kimberley on her website kimberleyharding.org.
