Come craft with us!

By the end of this program, you will go home with a small-to-medium-sized basket made of materials local to the area. The skills you will learn in this workshop can be used to make baskets of varying materials, shapes, and sizes, so if you’ve ever been interested in making your own basket, join us for this introductory class.

In this class, you will learn:

  • What local plants make good basketry material

  • Material selection and preparation

  • Basic basketry weaves

  • Basketry tools

  • And more!

You’ll love the wandering conversations that emerge when people sit and work on crafts together, plus, you get to go home with something you made with your own hands! Basketry can take a lot of focus, but the product you’ll end up with is well worth the effort.
