During this workshop students will learn to render basket material from two of the most beautiful of traditional basketmaking materials: southern white oak and northern black ash trees. You can choose from these options to yield a treasured, woven heirloom. Participants will create a fishing creel or purse woven on a mold using hardwood splint that they will learn to split, shape and process from a harvested tree
