House Basket Workshop
Saturday, July 22, 2017, 9am–4pm
For more than 150 years, the Shakers produced a wide variety of distinctive utility baskets for home use and exquisitely fine fancy baskets for sale to the world.
Instructor Pat Libby is a skilled basketmaker and well-versed in Shaker history. Each participant will weave their own basket using natural reed. This colorful, simple basket with wrapped handle adds beauty to every room! Color may vary from photo. Finished basket is 10″ x 11″ at base, 7″ tall plus handle. Participants have a choice of a plain handle or, if time and energy allows, you can learn to weave the wrapped handle.
All materials, tools, and supplies are included in fee. Super for beginners and beyond. Class size: 10.
