The Adirondack Pack Basket is one of the most recognized objects associated with the Adirondacks. These versatile baskets were used to carry just about everything the guides, hunters and trappers took with them into the woods. Create your own pack basket patterned from the traditional Adirondack Pack Baskets. The large pack is a great size for an adult man or woman. The first day students will weave a plain weave base with the pre-cut spokes and then weave the sides. Linda will be guiding students as they concentrate on shape and creating a belly while learning to continuous weave. The main weaving will be done the first day. The baskets will sit and dry overnight. On the second day, students will pack baskets tight, level the top, weave a false rim, cut and tuck spokes, insert a hardwood handle and complete the rim and skids. Lastly, add an adjustable cotton or leather harness for carrying. Baskets will not be stained during class. Linda will teach you many tips and techniques and will bring all materials and tools students will need during class. Students will be using a drawknife and other sharp tools. Basket dimensions are 9" x 12" X 20" height.
