ADKFS: Mountain Gathering Basket with Barbara Boughton

2 days. 9am-4pm. Tuition $250. Member Tuition $200. Materials fee $40.
This basket is based on a forerunner of the Nantucket Lightship basket, c. 1850. Woven on a round oak base, the spokes are inserted into a groove which holds them firmly in place. This basket employs a continuous chase weave to build the sides, using two weavers at once. The basket is hand-shaped, not woven on a mold, and students will be challenged and excited to watch their creations grow with two weavers. A hand-carved oak handle is incorporated into the rim, which finishes this rustically graceful and functional basket. It is woven on a 6″ oak base which grows into a 12″ diameter basket. Dimensions are approx. 10″ high at sides, 16″ high at handle.
