Wine Tote Workshop

Today Master Basket weaver Mary May was back in Belmar to once again offer a workshop in how to make a classic style of NJ Pinelands basket.

The design today was for a wine tote, a tall basket with a central handle that can hold a bottle or two of wine.  Workshop students attached the oak handle to the basket base, and then used basket reeds to gradually build up the sides.

Above, workshop instructor Mary May assists a student with an early stage of the project.  Below, her next workshop will cover how to make the 7" Scandinavian Snowflake shown here.

The Snowflake workshop will be on December 12, 2015.  Cost will be $10 for members, $15 for non-members.  There is also a $15 materials fee, which covers all the materials used in the project.  More information can be found on the class page on our main website.
