Come join us for a day of basket weaving at the Montgomery Center for the Arts, located in the historic Kelton Hall. In this day long basket weaving intensive, everyone will make and leave with their own Adirondack Pack Basket- one of the oldest surviving traditions of the Adirondack Park region, originally used for carrying heavy loads while hunting, fishing and trapping in the wilderness. Come join us and learn basic basketry techniques, and spend the day practicing this ancient and meditative craft of weaving. Everyone will leave with their own basket, perfect for foraging in the woods, harvesting in the garden, or carrying weather hiking in the mountains, spending a day at the beach, or bringing to the farmer’s market.
No experience necessary. Ages 16 and up. Please pack a lunch and water.
