Cedar and Willow Cat’s Head Basket Workshop

March 26 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

with Joan Carrigan

This basket is woven with cedar bark spokes and willow bark is woven in a continuous twill pattern. We will shape the basket in the style of the Cat’s Head basket associated with the Shaker tradition. These baskets start with a square base and are woven in a unique way to achieve a rounded shape. The rim of this basket is a decorative variation using yellow cedar bark three strand twining.

HCP Members $120
Non Members $140
