I teach basketry classes at a variety of art centers, state parks, and craft shops. The classes always include all materials, use of tools, and a fun time! All you have to bring is yourself, perhaps a friend or two, and something to snack on if you want. Unless otherwise stated, all classes are for those 16 years or older.

CLASSES and EVENTS:

==== October ===

== November ===

=== Class Registration Policies ===

Class fun Make an heirloom and have fun doing it! Baskets are fun, and can be very easy to make. I have classes ranging from beginner through intermediate, and into advanced skill levels.

Tell me about your group or organization and I will prepare a class proposal for you. The proposal outlines what facilities are needed, what classes will be taught, and what financial arrangements will be made.

All class prices include all materials needed to make the basket, use of tools, instruction, and lots of fun!

Organizational hosts may receive a portion of class proceeds, and individual hosts may receive their basket for free with minimum enrollment.

Call me at 423-494-5373 for more information.

~~~~~~~October~~~~~~~

Appalachian Heritage Day and Founder's Day Celebration, Historic Rugby, TN

Join us at a living history celebration and Appalachian history and culture. We will be there demonstrating, and selling baskets, along with other heritage artisans.

Saturday, October 4, and Sunday, October 5.

Narrow Tote Basket, October Workshop, Rugby TN

Shaker Spoon Basket, October Workshop, Rugby TN

October Workshop, Historic Rugby, TN

Our October Workshop at Historic Rugby will be useful baskets, that are a bit more challenging. Saturday, we'll start with a pretty, narrow, tote-style basket. With choice of colors in weaving accent and straps, there is a bit of challenge in shaping, but not more than a beginner can handle! Sunday, we will make a Shaker style, Spoon Basket. With handles at each end, and a cats-head style base, this is a beautiful and useful basket. The name comes from the shape - like the bowl of a spoon!

We are doing things a bit differently this year - the classes will be more like a workshop. We will be making two baskets on Saturday, and a third basket on Sunday. Students can choose to just attend either Saturday or Sunday - or go all out and do both days!

Classes start at 9:30am (Eastern Time), and go until the baskets are finished (mid to late afternoon) each day. All materials and use of tools are included. Just dress comfortably, and bring a towel or apron to protect your clothes. Accommodations are available from Historic Rugby or a local Bed & Breakfast, if you want to make it a weekend getaway! (Don't forget, Monday, October 13th is Columbus Day - all the more reason to make it a long weekend!)

Saturday, October 11, $45. Sunday, October 12, $45.
Both days at a discounted price, $85.
