Come to the Folk School and create a variation of the famous Adirondack Pack Basket!

This basket is a variation on an Adirondack Pack Basket, one of the oldest surviving traditions inside the Adirondack Park. You will use a continuous weave technique and hand shaping to create this wonderfully useful basket. Bridle leather will be used to weave the strapping and create a strap that will leave your hands free for blueberry picking or any other type of gathering. It also makes a great container to keep your yarn when knitting socks. The approximate finished size is 10″ – 12″ tall (width may vary). This is a challenging class with lots of hand shaping.

This is an advanced technique. Experience with basket weaving will be helpful in this class.
