Black Ash Pack Baskets

Course Overview

The black ash pack basket: it's beautiful, highly functional and can be made using simple materials. The first part of the class will be spent preparing black ash splint for your basket by pounding a locally harvested log. Next, you'll weave the basket and finish it with a rim, handle, runners, straps and harness, using a free form weaving technique. The finished basket will stand 16"-18" high, and be perfect for forages in the woods, excursions to the grocery store, canoe camping, ice fishing, or bigger adventures further afield. It’s a classic project you’ll enjoy for years to come. Note: this is a physically demanding course; students should be prepared to stand for most of the first day and swing a 3-5 pound mallet repeatedly.

Required Materials

All required tools/materials are provided by your instructor and North House and will be available once the course begins.
