Join local artist Shannon Lucas Westrum in creating your own antler bowl basket. Each piece will be unique to the antler and its maker.  Learn shaping and balance with this organic shaped basket. Size and shape will vary based on the antler chosen and personal preference.

All pieces will start with a pre-drilled antler.  Due to the nature (and aroma) of drilling into antlers, only those provided by the instructor will be used. Participants will learn the process to start the spokes, accommodate increases or decreases of spokes to create patterns, twining, and braiding the rim. Weavers will be a choice of natural and smoked round reed, with the opportunity to add accents of dyed reed or local grasses.  Finished basket will be similar to the sample in style and size (9”x7”x7”).

Shannon Lucas Westrum is a fiscal year 2023 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment  for the Arts.
