Market Basket

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

Instructor:  Ardith Hamilton
Date: Sat. June 27th or Dec. 5th
Time:  9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Cost: $99
Registration closes:  June 20th / Nov. 28th
No. of Students:  Min. 6 – Max. 10
Skill level: No experience necessary, some experience would be helpful
Materials provided by student: Pointed, sharp but sturdy scissors (I use wirecutters); 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.
