Straw Basket



Basket Weaving Workshop

May 22, 2022 - RESCHEDULED FOR FALL 2022

10 AM - 4 PM

Nordia House, outside, weather permitting



Explore the basics of basketry and learn to weave a basket, suitable for a harvesting basket, homework basket, or whatever you can dream up! Students will be able to choose the rough dimensions (to a limit) of their custom basket as we explore different techniques to weave into their utile carrier. Over the course of the day, students will complete the base, weaving, and rim of a finished basket to take home, but also to take time and explore creative expression and handwork through craft.


The ticket fee is per child, adult guardians attend at no additional charge. Adults must stay with children during the workshop. Adults can assist if necessary.


Weather permitting classes will be outside at Nordic Northwest’s forested Fogelbo property.


Maximum class size is 12 students.
