In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the basics of basketry while making their own berry basket. Styles of baskets and types of materials will be discussed. Once you know how to weave your basket, you will have the skills to create baskets for years to come.

Participants are asked to bring scissors or small snips, a round and dull butter knife, a knitting needle (pencil size or less), and a towel.
