Come hang out and learn the basics behind ribbed basketry while you construct a multi-functional, Appalachian-style Oval Foraging Basket! This wonderful cross-body tote is a faithful companion in either the market, the garden, or the woods as it’s generous capacity and sturdy leather strap allow you to hold a bountiful amount of findings, while keeping your hands free to roam.
Starting with a hand-split oak handle and rim, and using the ever forgiving reed to construct the frame as well as to weave your basket, we’ll go step-by-step through the process of building the cutest little Appalachian basket that ever was. Your finished basket will measure approximately 12” long, 10” wide, and 7” high. This class is suitable for all levels of weavers, from experienced to beginner.

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTES FOR THE CLASS:
  • This class will be held outdoors under a primitive shelter. Please dress appropriately for the weather forecast. In the event of heavy rains, we will reschedule the class for the following Saturday (May 18th). 
  • Ability to walk on rugged terrain is required. We will also be walking through shallow moving water, as well as on uneven ground through the forest. Waterproof waders are recommended.
  • There is a little bit of hand stamina required to comfortably move through this weave in a single day. If you have concerns about this, please contact me via my contact form.
  • There will be homemade pastries, coffee, and tea available upon arrival. Please pack a lunch and snacks to power yourself through the rest of the day. Hot water will be available throughout for coffee and tea.
