Basket Weaving is one of those skills that isn't a craft and it isn't woodworking. . . . it falls somewhere in between depending on where you focus your attention. We are bringing together the skills of basket weaving and the tools and experience of woodworking to teach a workshop that highlights the best of both worlds.
Join us for a day of instruction in which each person will build their very own Montsweag Market Basket. All tools and supplies are provided. Our instructor, Lori Vining brings 20+ years of basket making to share with attendees as well as her knowledge of woodworking tools hand tools that she has gathered while working at Shelter Tools. Lori will discuss basket design, weave styles, material selection, tools, weaving techinque and finishes.
Upon completion of this class you will have the knowledge and confidence to make this basket again and even try new and more complex designs.
