About the event

Basketry is the art of working with flexible organic materials - bark, sapling, fibers, splints, etc. - and interweaving them into usable containers of various sizes. Baskets were an essential tool for our ancestors, and still are highly valued today. Whether you're looking to make a collection basket, a long-term pack basket, or a simple container for household goods, this technique is for you! In this program, we'll dive into one of the most basic styles of basic weaving: splintwork. We will spend our time weaving a small, model-sized basket to teach you the basic principles. After that, there is no limit to what is possible with this simple technique! All materials provided. 

Light refreshments will be served. There will be a 1-hour break for lunch, which is available for purchase in the Farm Stand. 

*Please note that registration closes for this event on Saturday, July 9, 2022 at 11:59 PM EST. *

Joe Blevis is a mentor, naturalist, survivalist, and tracker.  The founder of Winding Waters Earth Skills, he firmly believes that primitive skills give us a strong sense of self-reliance, perseverance, and confidence that is unrivaled in today’s world.
