Season’s End Basket Workshop
Saturday, October 7, 2017, 9am–4pm
(Same day as our Harvest Festival— when you take a break from the class, enjoy all the festivities!)
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. Create this beautiful patterned basket for your fall farmer’s market visits! Pat will have color choices available at the workshop. Finished basket measures 8” x 15” base, 8” high to top of basket and 14” to top of the handle.
All materials, tools, and supplies are included in the fee. Super for beginners and beyond. Class size: 10.
