Organize your creative chaos in the art of the random weave basket. In this workshop, you will learn how to identify wild plants in the local landscape and take them from the field and forest to a completed basket. Inspired by the structures of many a wild creature, this basket style can be one of the simplest and yet most complex constructions. Each person should leave with a basket either complete or far enough in the process to confidently finish at home. Tools: please bring a sharp knife or hand pruners if you have them, some tools will be available to use onsite. About the Speaker

Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.
The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.
