After shaping a mallet on a drawhorse, use it and other traditional hand tools to rive splits from a white oak tree and make them into a sturdy and functional basket. We’ll also take a walk in the woods to identify what makes a suitable tree for this type of work. Come for the challenge and leave with an heirloom basket with hand-carved handle and rims. All levels welcome, but good hand strength is required.
