Working over a wooden mold in the manner of the Shakers, basket weaver Karen Wychock will lead participants in weaving two baskets using a variety of dyed materials during the workshop. The charming 6” x 6” square reed basket with oak handle and ash lashing is perfect for holding your fresh cut spring and summer flowers. Four small bottles fit snugly inside to hold your favorite blooms!
Instructor Karen is a member of the Bucks County Craftsmen’s Guild and the PA Guild of Craftsmen. As a weaver of traditional Shaker baskets, she has sold her work through various shows throughout PA and Delaware. She was also president of the Penn-Jersey Basket Weavers Guild for six years and has taught numerous basket weaving workshops.
Preregistration is necessary as the workshop size is limited. The workshop fee is $55 ($50 member) plus $25 for the materials fee for the two baskets. Clear bottles that fit into the baskets may be purchased from the instructor at the workshop for $6 cash (for four bottles).
