Basketry



Adirondack Berry Picking and Gathering Basket

Beverly Cornelius

This basket is a variation on an Adirondack Pack Basket, one of the oldest surviving traditions inside the Adirondack Park. You will use a continuous weave technique and hand shaping to create this wonderfully useful basket. Shaker tape will be used to create a sturdy strap that will leave your hands free for blueberry picking or any other type of gathering. It also makes a great container to keep your yarn when knitting socks. This basket will be woven using reed and Shaker tape. The approximate finished size is 10 - 12" tall (width may vary).

This is a great way to get your Christmas weaving done with Linda's help! All the kits are for smaller projects, quick to make, great for gift giving or for your own home or camp. There are two Adirondack Pack baskets being offered - the Baby and the Sweetie. This is the first time the Sweetie is being offered for a class! The Notepad and the Small Wall are reed baskets. They both look great in Adirondack theme or Christmas colors. Also on offer are a couple of Cotton Cord projects; a bracelet and a basket. There will be more kits, too many to list, all great for this special weekend. Get together with a friend or with family and weave away for the holidays and have some fun.
