Make your own basket and in the process learn one of the oldest crafts in human history. For thousands of years baskets served as indispensable objects in every culture. Carry on the tradition and take home a beautiful, durable and useful basket crafted from local and responsibly harvested, hand pounded black ash logs.


This is a great introduction to the extraordinary qualities of the black ash tree. Weave a square to round basket, approximately 6"x6" with optional leather strap. Included is a discussion on how the material is harvested and processed. Ages 14 and up.
