Basketry Workshop: How to make a Wool-Drying Basket

The Scoop

Interested in the craft of basketry? Southern Highland Craft Guild member, Susan Taylor, will be hosting multiple basketry classes in 2024! Join Susan on March 19th at the Folk Art Center Boardroom for a day of learning and creating. In this class, you’ll be crafting yourself a beautiful Wool Drying Basket! This basket was used historically for just that, drying fleece. The basket has legs so that air can circulate through the wool, side handles to help carry the basket & wool, and an all-over twill pattern. This basket is relatively easy and fun to weave and is created to last a lifetime! The shaker tape handles go all the way around the basket for strength. Consider joining the class with a friend, or come alone and make friends as you learn!
