Overview

Our first ever thematic weekend celebrating baskets kicks off August 28-September 2. The week features 14 basket themed courses that utilize natural materials like birch bark, willow, cedar and black ash. Guest instructors Judy Zugish and Karen Tembreull join the North House faculty to offer new courses that introduce intermediate skills. We will also offer a course on making tools commonly used in basket making such as fids, splitters and knockers. On Friday, September 1, the entire day will be devoted to demonstrations, talks, a basket market place and of course, a wood-fired pizza bake. All students who register for coursework during the week are invited to participate in the conference day for no additional tuition.
