Farmer's Market Tote Basket Workshop
Registration Now Open!
Instructor: Beth Hester, Scottsville, Kentucky
Join us at the Artisan Center in Berea, Kentucky for a fun day of weaving. In this easy-to-make-basket workshop, students will learn techniques for shaping their basket and creating perfect rims. You’ll enjoy the process of making this generously-sized basket using natural reed, dyed reed, and paper splint; the set of leather handles add a great look—and they are so practical! Perfect for shopping or carrying projects, this filled-base basket measures 13” x 5.5” at the base and stands 13” tall. Immerse yourself in a day of weaving and enjoy your creation for years to come. Thanks to Lynne Marrs Hammer Ferguson, Artist in Residence, Kentucky Museum for her inspiration in creating this basket.
