Black Ash Market Basket   

The market basket will take you many places: from the market to the beach, from picnics to the grocery stores. This course is an introduction to the awesome qualities of the ash tree, which we will use for both weaving the basket and making the handles. Through scraping and cutting, we will prepare the splint to create a basket measuring approximately 11"x 6" x 6". Working with shave horse and drawknife, we will then bend a freshly harvested ash handle to insert into the basket, bringing the overall height to approx. 12”.

Required Tools

All materials and tools will be provided to the students by the instructors; however, if you have a favorite scissor that cuts wood splint, a favorite whittling or carving knife or special sturdy clamps…feel free to bring them with you.  A table complete with resource materials as well as a plethora of basket styles will be set up on site for further enhancement.
