Adirondack Pack Basket Weaving Workshop
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 from 10am - 5:30pm
Come join us for a day of basket weaving at the beautiful Free Verse Farm and Apothecary. In this full day baset-weaving intensive, everyone will make and leave with their own hand-crafted Adirondack Pack Basket, a basket that dates back to the 1800s, and was originally used for carrying heavy loads while trekking, hiking, hunting and trapping in the Adriondack Park Region.
Basket weaving is a way to connect with our ancestral lineage, it is an allowance to sit together and tell stories, to commit to making slow and honoring the process. Come enjoy a relaxing and fun day in a beautiful farm setting to learn a new skill and leave with your own basket for use in garden, forest, farm, or mountain.
Snack and herbal tea will be provided. Please bring a pot-luck dish to share, a pencil, a flat head screwdriver, and scissors.
