Adirondack Folk School’s Shaker Cathead Basket with Barbara Boughton

March 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

$170

The Shaker Community is known for its simply elegant design aesthetic that combines form and function. This class introduces you to the Cathead base, a Shaker classic. In this form, a small, square-base, grows into a round basket at the diameter and height of your choosing. This technique of weaving corners, produces four ÒfeetÓ upon which the basket rests, creating a raised base on the inside of the basket, which allows its contents to first fill the perimeter and then the center. Disbursing the weight of the basket contents, first to the perimeter, prevents produce from becoming bruised, and protects the center of the basket from wearing out. You will weave a two-by-two twill pattern for both the base and the sides of the basket.
