Adirondack Folk School - Adirondack Berry Picking & Gathering Basket
Adirondack Folk School : 51 Main St., Lake Luzerne, NY 12846
8:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Come to the Folk School and create a variation of the famous Adirondack Pack Basket.
The Adirondack Pack Basket is one of the oldest surviving traditions inside the Adirondack Park.
You will use a continuous weave technique and hand shaping to create this wonderfully useful basket. Shaker tape will be used to create a sturdy strap that will leave your hands free for blueberry picking or any other type of gathering.
This is an advanced technique. Experience wil basket weaving will be helpful in this class.
