Adirondack Style Pack Basket

  • $135 Issaquah, Wa (map)

Traditionally used by the early trappers, pack baskets were used to carry heavy loads of gear and furs on extended expeditions in the back-country.  As our traditions move forward these strong but light vessels now become the perfect basket for your next picnic in the park, a quick trip to the farmer’s market, or a day hike to your favorite berry patch.  

In this class two-day class we will be weaving with strong yet light, high-quality reed while you learn how to shape the “belly” of your basket creating the roomy pack basket shape. Baskets will be finished by lashing a hardwood handles into a sturdy rim and then adding custom strapping for ease of carry. Ours pack baskets have become constant companions nearly every time we head out the door.
