Event description

Description

You will keep the quilt basket forever. The one in the photo was made in class last fall!

My quilt basket has been around for years in so many variations! Mine was made at least 20 years ago with Anne Bowers. It is so sturdy and serviceable and has carried loads of heavy books, materials for festivals and anything else I need to load into it! Quilt Basket class is a 2-day class.

Measuring 17"L x 8"W and 19" at the handle, the weaving moves more quickly due to a 2" ash strip insert! The handle weaves back into the basket and is wrapped making the basket extra strong. Dark Green is the one color choice.

  • Level: Intermediate

  • Price: $150

  • Class Size: 7

  • Refunds: There are no refunds. All materials for these classes are custom-made and/or ordered and hand dyed in advance. If you are unable to attend the class for any reason, you will receive a kit and all the supplies needed to make the basket. Based on variability, availability and costs of materials and molds, all prices subject to change without notice.


All sales and proceeds from Charm City Baskets are dedicated to supporting the research of the nonprofit Center for Research in Basketry, Inc., (CRB). The CRB’s mission is to study the effects of social policy on the basket making industry, the work and personal lives of basket makers and their baskets, and to add scholarship and research to the profession.
 


In a race to save the disappearing craft of basket making, the CRB and its exhibits are part of a vital research effort by the Center for Research in Basketry to identify and record baskets throughout Maryland.

The Center holds basket making classes from March until October.

Our CRB website, basketresearch.org is under revision and reorganization. Should you have any questions, please contact Kathi Beauchesne at kobeauchesne@basketresearch.org.
