ONLINE: Students will learn to render basket material from two of the most beautiful of traditional basket making materials: southern white oak and northern black ash trees. Participants will create a fishing creel on a mold using hardwood splint that they will learn to split, shape, and process from a harvested tree. Finishing elements include a cherry wood lid and leather strap for your basket. Open to all skill levels, however you must have enough hand strength for handling edge tools and greenwood processing.
