Learn the Art of Hexagonal Weave Basketry with Daniel Docherty
Hexagonal weave is a beautiful basketry technique that once mastered, offers an abundance of basketry possibilities. Participants will be introduced to the sacred nature of the art form before learning about the materials and tools involved.
We'll then begin to weave our baskets!
No previous experience is required. Hexagonal weaving can prove challenging and baskets may need to be completed at home.
Spherical Basketry: Weaving an Icosidodecahedron: A circle divides itself perfectly into six by its own radius. In 3D six 'strands' can be woven into six interlocking circles to form an Icosidodecahedron - a structure with 12 pentagons and 20 equilateral triangles that demonstrates something of the intrinsic relationship between Dodecahedron and Icosahedron.
