About the event
Join us for this two day class making this beautiful Black/Brown ash basket! The class will include the opportunity to learn how the ash strips are pounded off the log. All materials will be provided. Class size is limited to 10 participants, so book your’s today! With the destruction of the ash trees by the emerald ash borer, this may be your last opportunity to learn this important skill with black ash. Your basket is sure to become a treasured heirloom.
Instructors: Linda Hartman, local ash basket artist and teacher Sherry Gould, local Abenaki basket maker
Limited to 10 participants
Cost: $200 (reduced prices available)

Classes will all be taught outside under a tent, with a backup plan in case of rain. The location at Foster Farm is rustic, and participants should be comfortable being outdoors for the full day.
