Basketmaking Class: Coming up Wednesday, August 17th
Make your very own handy basket!
For utensils, or tools, or dried flower arrangements, this beautiful basket will hold it with style! Come learn some basics of weaving and leave with a handsome, functional basket. This is a great project for those with some weaving experience to hone their skills, or beginner basketmakers looking for a fun project. We’ll spend the morning weaving, with optional time the following week for anyone who needs a little extra help finishing their basket.
No experience necessary, but beginner weavers may have more to do at home. Come prepared to weave through the morning, have fun and learn several weaving techniques!
Tools and supplies provided, but please feel free to bring your own basketmaking tools if you have them.
