Registration underway for basketmaking days
Registration is underway for Handle & Hoops Basket Days Dec. 1-3 at the Jefferson County Park Nature Center.
“Christmas is coming and with a little effort you can make a beautiful basket to give as a gift,” said Jefferson County Naturalist Therese Cummiskey.
Participants will have several sizes of handles or hoops from which to choose. Melon baskets will be made from the hoops and are a great basket for beginners. Those individuals choosing a handle will have flexibility in their design and in the materials they use.
Cost will vary from $8-$16 depending on handle/hoops chosen.
Participants will have the flexibility to work on their basket any time from: 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Dec. 1; 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Dec. 2; and 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Dec. 3.
Registration is required. Contact the naturalist by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 472-4421.
