Black Ash Market Basket
Date(s) - May 17, 2019 - May 19, 2019
North House Folk School
500 Highway 61 West
This course is an introduction to the qualities of the ash tree, which we will use for both weaving the basket and making the handles. We will prepare the splint and create a basket measuring approximately 11″ x 6″ x 6″. We will then steam bend an ash handle and insert it into the basket, bringing the overall height to 12″. Students will be exposed to cutting splint with scissors and slitting gauges, weaving, knife work, and steam bending.
