How to do Things: Weave a Basket

Join us for this fun and creative craft class on August 9.

We'll each weave a basket on a 5” x 8” wooden base.  Baskets are pretty, and practical, any time of the year! In this class you’ll learn how to handle basket reed and how to shape a basket.   No basket making experience is required.

Basket making is wet work, so wear old clothes and bring a towel.  The instructor will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop. However, we ask that you please bring $5 to cover the cost of supplies.

This class will take place from 6:30- 8:30 pm on August 9, in the Main branch's second floor events room.

This class is limited to 18 particpants. Preregistration is required, using the form at

This workshop is provided by the Huntsville Fiber Guild and the ongoing Basket Classes at the Huntsville-Madison County Senior Center.
