Two Day Basket Making Workshop
March 18, 2022 @ 9:00 am - March 19, 2022 @ 5:00 pm |
Come and join us as we make a traditional 10″ pack basket and a childrens small longhouse basket with Kimberly White-Atkins from Talking Turtle Baskets.
Pack 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 reemergence 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.
Making this a perfect activity to do on your March break!
