Come and join us as we make 5” Fancy Basket Workshop with Kimberly White-Atkins from Talking Turtle Baskets.
Baskets are crafted with sturdy, tightly woven black ash splints that are used by hunters and trappers to bring their harvests home. Women used them to carry the plants and food they harvest. Today, with the re-emergence of natural products gaining traction, more and more people are using these traditional baskets in their everyday lives for shopping, gathering, or simply transporting items from one place to another.
Come enjoy the day with us and learn something new!
Please note that we will have the cabins available for rent for people who are interested. If you would like to book head to our website www.chiefswoodpark.ca
