Registration underway for basketmaking days

Nov 23, 2016

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 theresemarguerite@gmail.com or by calling 472-4421.
