      "Twined Basket Basics" Class with Nancy Bindig

      The Studios of Cocoa Beach is hosting this beginner's workshop on October 5. Learn the foundations for weaving an upright basket using tabby and twining techniques in round reed material. You will learn how to measure, cut, shape and weave a "Stake and Strand" basket and finish with a simple border stitch on the rim.. Colored reed and other weaving materials will be provided for each person to add personal touches to their basket. 

      Nancy Bindig of Merritt Island is both a fiber artist and art instructor. She started her self-taught basketry journey years ago with traditional techniques, materials and forms, then moved on to incorporate palm inflorescence and other natural materials. She holds a BS in Art Education and has taught a variety of adults and children in myriad settings.

      Believing that “ all experience becomes woven intricately into our lives”, Nancy combines her love of art, nature, basketry and teaching in her own life. Teaching gives others the opportunity to make art and find a new creative voice or re-claim a buried passion. She encourages students to experience art as a vehicle for fun, relaxation, personal expression, and self-care!
