Black Ash Market Basket

Course Overview

The market basket will take you many places: from the market to the beach, from picnics to the grocery stores. This course is an introduction to the awesome qualities of the ash tree, which we will use for both weaving the basket and making the handles. We will prepare the splint and create a basket measuring approximately 11" x 6" x 6". We will then steam bend an ash handle and insert it into the basket, bringing the overall height to 12". Students will be exposed to cutting splint with scissors and slitting gauges, weaving, knife work, and steam bending. Made well with quality instruction and materials, the market basket can take generations of family any place they want to go.
