We will be weaving a round continuous weave double bottom basket with a hand carved handle. It is approximately 9" in diameter. This sweet basket would have been used by colonials for many things: berry picking, a child gathering garden items, a lunch basket, a sewing basket....it is a perfect size for lots of useful endeavors!
Cost is $45 per person (all proceeds benefit the Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, Inc.) Visit www.catoctinfurnace.org to register or call 443-463-6437
Limited to 15. Please bring lunch, snacks and drinks.
Students should bring the following: sharpened pencil, old towel, a brick (wrapped in saran wrap) or heavy item to weigh down spokes, 10 clip clothes pins, a spray bottle for water, measuring tape...a cloth one is preferable as metal will rust. Please wear comfortable clothes that can get wet and dirty.
