You'll create—and take home—two distinct styles of willow trays: one oval and one round, all crafted from locally harvested willow. These trays are not only functional but also echo the beauty and simplicity of handmade artistry.

Whether you're new to the craft or looking to expand your weaving repertoire, this workshop promises a fulfilling and educational experience. 

Don't forget to bring your own bagged lunch as you'll surely work up an appetite. We provide the willow, the guidance, and the camaraderie; you bring your enthusiasm and creativity. 

Come, weave your way into a new skill!

A note from your Instructor: Karla Powell


I have been working with willow for over 20 years and get such joy from crafting these useful and beautiful baskets from locally sourced willow along the Sheep River in Southern Alberta. I'm grateful to be able to share this passion with you."
