Weave a Foraging Basket
August 26, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$125
Margaret Mathewson brings her expertise and talent to this weaving workshop for those dedicated to creating a functional mushrooming or foraging basket. Margaret, founder of the Ancient Arts Center, Lobster Valley, Oregon, also provides an overview of the history and how this basket is used. Bring your
dedication to details and hands-on learning – and you will be rewarded with a fine basket to use for a lifetime. Due to size some baskets may need to be finished at home.
This workshop includes:
- Hands-on instruction on creating a mushrooming basket
- Supplies used in the class
- An overview of the history of baskets and their use and importance in society
- A vegetarian lunch
- Your finished, or nearly finished, basket to take home, plus the knowledge to create more baskets in the future
Vegetarian lunch and beverages are homemade from farm ingredients as the season allows and are included in the price of your reservation.
