About the class
Beginning basket makers and those with no experience are welcome and encouraged to sign up for this one-day basketry workshop. During the workshop students will make one basket. The first steps in this basket workshop start with a demonstration of how to establish the basket base from the beginning. Students will follow and be guided step by step while creating their basket base. The baskets are made from round reed employing over/under and twining technique. Ample hands-on attention will be given to each student during the weaving process. Please note: hand strength is required for basket making.

There will be a short lunch break in the afternoon; please bring a bag lunch.
When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
