Adirondack Berry Picking and Gathering Basket with Beverly Cornelius. #1335-0817. 1 day.
August 17 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm$40. – $115.
This basket is a variation on an Adirondack Pack Basket, one of the oldest surviving traditions inside the Adirondack Park. You will use a continuous weave technique and hand shaping to create this wonderfully useful basket. Shaker tape will be used to create a sturdy strap that will leave your hands free for blueberry picking or any other type of gathering. It also makes a great container to keep your yarn when knitting socks. This basket will be woven using reed and Shaker tape. The approximate finished size is 10 – 12″ tall (width may vary).
NOTE: Student to bring to class: Basin for water, sheetrock knife, an old towel and washcloth, clip clothespins and a spray bottle.
