Black Ash Basketry Workshops with Alice Ogden

August 16 and 17, 2019   •   The Basket Maker’s Catalog   •   Scottsville, Kentucky

  Choose from five 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 basket workshops.  The Gardener’s Pick Baskets are each one-day and are for students of all levels.  

  Skilled weavers may choose from the two-day workshops as well—either the intricate Sterling, the newly designed Autumn Weave or the favorite Acorn.  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 for their traditional craftsmanship.  You may have seen the feature article 'Why We're Swooning Over These Baskets from Alice Ogden' in the October 2018 Martha Stewart magazine!  Congratulations, Alice! 

  Make your workshop choices and register today!   

   Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity in Scottsville, Kentucky to work with Alice, weave on a mold, and create some treasures.  We hope to see you in August!  Call today to register 270-237-4821 or1-800-447-7008.*


sterling alice ogden

Sterling (two-day workshop)  Create an intricately woven lidded basket as you weave on a collapsible wooden form using finely prepared 1/32” ash weavers on day 1. Day 2 is spent finishing up with the decorative quatrefoil top (Alice will start the top for you). Designed for holding treasures, this basket is perfect for your jewelry and small precious collectibles.  Velvet inserts are available in class and add a nice touch.

Size: 3” in height and 4” in diameter.
Two-Day Class Fee*:  $430.00   August 16 and 17, 2019  -Alice will start the quatrefoil lid for you.

Autumn Weave (two-day workshop)  A rugged new basket design using expertly prepared ash (1/8” weavers and 3/8” uprights), woven on a mold with the handcarved white oak handle running lengthwise. Perfect for many uses. Lashed on wooden runners may be added (additional cost of $45.00 is included in the fee below) and can be viewed on Alice's website under the rectangular basket tab.

acorn alice ogden

Acorn Basket (two-day workshop)  Enjoy creating this beautiful Acorn Basket--the perfect challenge for skilled basket makers.  It’s about 7” tall when 'topped'.  You’ll use 3/8” and 1/4” black ash splints and weave with finely prepared 1/16” black ash weavers.  Learn to make “spiders” and use a wooden form to help shape this basket—a one of a kind acorn for your basket collection.  The first day is spent weaving the bottom and the second day is spent weaving the stem into the top that fits the bottom of the acorn. We’re excited that Alice is offering the Acorn Basket again this year!
