Bamboo splitting, lamp shade construction, and rattan weaving

October 21 - October 24

I will be teaching a four hour workshop on Sunday at the ABS conference and giving a lecture on my work!

Traditional bamboo strip making for basketry and other finely crafted bamboo objects requires specialized tools. This centuries old set of techniques takes several years to master, and objects made with these techniques have the aesthetics of being highly crafted. Come and learn through demonstration about the tools and techniques in bamboo strip making, use some prepared bamboo strips and pre-prepared materials to create a miniature decorative bamboo lamp shade (great for votive candles!), and learn about artists who create baskets with this type of process. Additionally, the end of class will culminate in making a necklace with a traditional rattan knot. This type of knot, which originated in China, is one of the techniques used in conjunction with bamboo basketry.
Hour 1: Bamboo basket lecture, bamboo splitting demonstration, bamboo spamples presentation.
Hour 2: Assemble lamp shade
Hour 3: Decorate shade
Hour 4: Rattan knot (for those finished with decorating)
