Event Description: Rewild Portland is offering an English Ivy bike basket weaving class this January. Learn to weave a simple bike basket out of the invasive species Hedera helix, otherwise known as English Ivy. Restore and maintain the native habitat of our city parks by removing the ivy and then recycling the cast off vines into a functional work of art. The class is 3 days long and takes place in two parts. Part 1: On January 8th we will harvest the ivy and learn to remove it in a way where it will not grow back. Part 2: On Janaury 29th and 30th we will weave bicycle baskets out of the ivy and attach them to our bicycles. The cost is $95.
