Saint Meinrad Archabbey Guest House and Retreat Center, St. Meinrad will host a series of four-week basket weaving workshops starting in July taught by Br. Jean Fish, OSB. The workshops are titled Sculptural Basket Weaving: Object Form and Ornamentation. 

Participants will learn various techniques for creating woven vessels such as a hanging ornament, a bowl, and a cup. These objects will provide a fundamental understanding of basket weaving that can be adapted for each individual’s creative vision. The use of various colored yarns will also allow participants to generate a wide variety of patterns.

The first session will be offered on the following Mondays; July 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 9 to 11 a.m. Central Time.

The second session will be offered on the following Mondays in September and October; September 9, 16, 30, and October 7 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Central Time.

The third session will be offered on the following Mondays in November and December; November 18 and 25, and December 2 and 9 from 9 to 11 a.m. or 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Central Time.

Jean Fish, OSB, a monk of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, a Masters of Theology from Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology, and a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology from Sonoma State University, California.
