Making Simple Traditional Baskets from Flat Reed

July 10 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In this workshop, Bliss McIntosh will demonstrate both bark and ash splint baskets. Each participant will make either a square bottom, round top basket or a small oval wall basket, using flat reed, but working in the traditional style of black ash splint. This is the most basic of designs which can be refined or expanded to make any size or shape. The finished basket will have rims but not a handle and will be suitable as a serving basket or a small “mailbox” shape.
