Adirondack Pack Basket Weaving Workshop

Sun, Jul 16, 2017 at 10:30am

This event has passed.

Come join us for a day of basket weaving at the beautiful Golden Well Farm and Apiaries. In this full day baset-weaving intensive, everyone will make and leave with their own hand-crafted Adirondack Pack Basket, a basket that dates back to the 1800s, and was originally used for carrying heavy loads while trekking, hiking, hunting and trapping in the Adriondack Park Region.

Basket weaving is a way to connect with our ancestral lineage, it is an allowance to sit together and tell stories, to commit to making slow and honoring the process. Come enjoy a relaxing and fun day in a beautiful farm setting to learn a new skill and leave with your own basket for use in garden, forest, farm, or mountain.

Snack and tea will be provided. Please bring a pot-luck dish to share, a pencil, a flat head screwdriver, and scissors.

Class fee is $75, materials fee is $45. All weaving materials included in fee, straps not included.

This class is open to ages 16 and up, no experience necessary.  Space is limited so please register early!
