Black Ash Pack Basket   

The black ash pack basket: It's beautiful, highly functional, and can be made using simple materials. The first part of the class will be spent preparing black ash splint for your basket by pounding a locally harvested log. Next, you'll weave the basket and finish it with a rim and harness. The finished basket will stand 18" high, and be perfect for forages in the woods, excursions to the grocery store, canoe camping, ice fishing, or bigger adventures further afield. It’s a classic project you’ll enjoy for years to come. Note: this is a PHYSICALLY DEMANDING course. Students should be prepared to stand and swing a 3-5 pound mallet for several hours. Expect to be tired at the end of each day!
