Market Basket

  • Arbutus Folk School 610 4th Ave E Olympia, WA, 98501 United States (map)

Instructor:  Ardith Hamilton
Date: Saturday, March 21
Time: Instruction is 9 am – 4:00 pm 
Cost: $99
Registration closes:  March 14

Number of Students: Minimum of 6, maximum of 10
Skill level: No experience required

Materials provided by student: Pointed, sharp but sturdy scissors; ruler or tape measure; pencil for marking reed, taking notes; towel and basin to hold water for soaking reed; weight to hold spokes in place (while they lie flat on the table)

Class Description: This Market Basket is a medium sized, sturdy basket, slightly different from other market baskets as the bottom is woven solid.  If you have no basketmaking experience you can do this, but it will be easier for you if you have made a basket before. I anticipate you will finish this basket during the class or you can leave with sufficient materials and skills to finish it at home. 

Notes: All classes take place at the Arbutus Folk School 610 4th Ave. E., Olympia, WA 98501. Classes will be canceled if minimum number of students are not registered. Registering early helps us prepare and offer the highest quality experience for everyone and there is no risk: Full refunds are provided if classes are canceled.   The Arbutus Folk School proudly admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
