Shopper baskets are one of the most functional and most used baskets throughout history.

Participants will learn about reed types, cutting reed, soaking, and weaving the basket from the base up. Participants are welcome to bring a sack lunch or take a lunch break on Saturday, April 9th and if needed, an optional evening to finish your basket is scheduled for Thursday, April 14th from 5 pm-8 pm.
