Space-Dyed Market Basket Workshop


Saturday, August 19, 2017, 9am–4pm

The Shakers are renowned for their basket-making practices, having produced hundreds of utility baskets throughout the 1800s.

Join artist and basketmaker Carolyn Kemp for this exciting contemporary twist on a classic basket design. Participants will complete a traditional plain weave market basket from space dyed reed that has beautiful subtle transitions of hand-dyed color.

Your choice of Rainbow jewel tone reeds with oak handle for $85 OR Shades of Blue reeds with oak handle for $75. (price difference is due to material preparation)

All materials will be custom-created for this class and provided to participants.   No prior experience necessary. Class size: 9.

This class is currently SOLD OUT – please contact us if you’d like to get on the waiting list in the event a spot opens up.
