Class Description:

These little heirloom pieces are very unique and rich in history.  It is a basket reproduced just as the Shaker sisters made it many years ago to be sold to the ladies that visited their stores.  Your basket will be woven on a mold, using hand pounded brown ash and then assembled with saw dust as the originals were.

No previous weaving experience is required.  The workshop includes all materials, instructions and use of the instructor’s tools needed to complete your project.
