Basket Workshops

2017 Basket Weaving Workshops

Experienced teacher Julie Duttlinger returns to Buckley to teach her popular basket workshops.  Participants are guaranteed a finished basket by the end of the class. Two classes are offered for each basket.  Bring a 3+ gallon bucket, 8+ clip clothes pins, old scissors, a pencil, tape measure or ruler, awl or small flat screwdriver or knitting needle and an old towel and a spray bottle for water. If under age 15, it is recommended that parents stay during the workshop.   Come in your work clothes. The classes last through lunch so bring a sack lunch and a cold drink.
