Invasive Bittersweet Basket

$35

with Zach Rouda

Calendar Next available session starts Nov 21, 2019 at 5:30 pm, runs for 1 week
Invasive, round-leafed bittersweet is a creeping vine with inedible berries that is considered invasive in North America. Frustrating to gardeners and arborists, and not readily favored by birds, bittersweet is a largely useless bane on wild land. We can use traditional harvesting techniques to tend Asian bittersweet in the wild; harvesting material for baskets while controlling and suppressing future damaging growth. Learn to make a strong, beautiful basket of invasive round-leaf bittersweet! We’ll cover identification, responsible collection, material processing and storage, and creation, including the basics of stake-and-strand twining and weaving.
