North House Folk School Basket Week

Date: October 1, 2024 - October 7, 2024

Time: All Day

Location: North House Folk School

Event Description

Join us for a gathering of basket-makers, both advanced and aspiring! Basketry embodies the soul of traditional craft: simple tools, natural materials and skilled hands result in purposeful, beautiful items. Birch bark, spruce root, pine needles, black ash—the northern forest has been generous to basketmakers, and we’ll explore a variety of techniques and forms.

This year, we’re thrilled to welcome international guest instructor Steen Madsen back to North House. Steen is a remarkable basketmaker from Ringstead, Denmark who has been weaving with willow since 1979.

Courses during Basket Week open for registration on February 29, 2024 (or February 28 for members). More event details will be available soon.
