Adirondack Pack Basket - Sightseer
FB8203 May 10 & 11, 2018 (9am-4:30pm) Thursday & Friday (LTB Studio)

The Adirondack Pack Basket is one of the most recognized objects associated with the Adirondacks. These versatile baskets were used to carry just about everything the guides, hunters, and trappers took with them into the woods. Create your own pack basket patterned from the traditional Adirondack Pack Baskets. The medium pack is a great size for teens or adult men and women.
The first day students weave a plain weave base with the pre-cut spokes and then weave the sides. Linda will be guiding students as they concentrate on shape, creating a belly while learning to continuous weave. The main weaving will be done the first day. The baskets sit and dry overnight. The second day, students pack baskets tight, level the top, weave a false rim, cut and tuck spokes, insert a hardwood handle, and complete the rim and skids. Lastly, add an adjustable webbing or leather harness for carrying. Linda will guide you and teach you many tips and techniques. Students will be using a drawknife and other sharp tools. Ages 18 and over. A materials fee of $90 (cotton harness) or $130 (leather harness) will be added to the tuition.
