Gardener’s Pick  Working with black ash is truly a remarkable experience.  You’ll weave your basket on a wooden mold with 1/2” and 3/16” prepared black ash splint and attach a beautiful hand carved white oak handle and rims.  Alice has prepared the splints along with the rims and handles for all the Gardener’s Pick Baskets so they nest, one inside the other.  For one-day workshops please let us know if you'll be attending August 14 or 15.
Note:  The mold is for use during the class and is returned to Alice at the end of class.  Beginner to intermediate level. 

If you have made baskets that are part of this set, bring those baskets with you to class in order to adjust the height and placement of rims and handles for nesting.
