Choose from four workshops with master black ash weaver Alice Ogden of Salisbury, New Hampshire. Spend time with a small group of fellow weavers working with fine black ash materials, hand harvested and prepared by Alice and her husband, Brad. Choose from one-day or two-day workshops. The Medium Gardener’s Pick and the Back Pack with Leather Strap are offered to students of all levels. Skilled weavers may choose from the two-day workshops as well—either the intricate Oval Feather Basket or the Shaker Cheese-Weave Tub. You’ll appreciate Alice’s teaching style and her depth of knowledge. In addition you’ll enjoy working with her ash splints and her trademark hand-carved oak handles and rims. Alice’s baskets are especially prized by collectors all over the country for their traditional craftsmanship. Make your choices and register today!
