    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 is a perfect size for lots of useful endeavors!

    Cost is $45 per person (all proceeds benefit the Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, Inc.)
