Six Week Class
You will make three distinct and different baskets in this six-week session: the Bread Basket, the Melon Basket and the Homestead Vegetable Basket. These are all beautiful and useful, and were specifically chosen as they cover all the basic skills required to become an accomplished basket maker.
These sessions are geared to beginner and intermediate levels, although Mary has two students who have been with her for twelve years!
Cost: The $60 fee covers the full six week session, plus cost of supplies. Sessions are renewable and other baskets will be taught as each student increases his or her skill level.
