Basket Making – $40 – Click to Register
Limit 10 Students per Class
Friday: 8am-12pm and 1pm-5pm
I learned basket weaving from my sister who wanted to pass on the craft to me before she passed away from cancer. I truly enjoy making baskets and teaching it as well, and I think of my sister with each basket I weave.
Students will learn twining, over and under weaving, lashing, and attaching a rim row. Also, they will learn how to take care of the baskets after they are woven.
I will have a few extra kits of the ones we are making available each day for purchase. The kits will be in natural and various colors.
Other Family Programs may be available at Conference time

Green Coal is an opportunity for any new/beginning student to learn the very basics of blacksmithing, i.e.:
- How to build and maintain a fire
- How to use the parts of an anvil
- Processes for forging simple pieces
- Forming hooks and finials
Green Coal is a great (and economical!) introduction to blacksmithing.
