Basket Weaving Classes: Learn how to weave a basket out of Split Oak Basket Reed
Basket weaving is a skill that centers on simple repetition. If you like this kind of skill or stress reducing activity,join us at the next class. The King George Citizen's Center on rt 3 in King George, VA, will be hosting beginner basket weaving lessons this fall and winter!
The concept of basket weaving is simple, and becomes easier to do the more that you try!
If you are interested you can make a basket for yourself at the class and take home supplies ( for a small fee) to make one on your own for a gift for a friend!
Classes are available for 1 to 5 students, ideally age 8 and up.
For classes Monday to Friday, classes are available-- just call two weeks before you want to hold it and we can make it happen!
For classes desired on weekends, please call to schedule a month and a half in advance. Many, if not all Saturdays I am at an art festival or Farmers Market for most of the day.
All materials are provided-- check out the kit above, with written instruction to back up in- person demonstration and hands- on learning.
