The public is invited to partake in two days of basket-making Sept. 13-14 at Camp Horseshoe in Tucker County.
Joni Neubert, of Canaan Valley, will once again be our instructor. She will show us how to weave a lovely and useful lattice-work basket with handle on Friday, Sept. 13 ($40). On Saturday, Sept. 14, we will be making a carry-anything plaid tote basket with handle ($50).
The baskets are heavy-duty and can be used for numerous chores at home or to carry with pride to covered dish dinners, sewing/knitting retreats, picnics, etc. Don't miss the chance to make your own and have a wonderful time with friends doing it. It's two days, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 13 and lasting through Saturday, Sept. 14, until you complete your baskets. There is also a one-day option available.
This will be time away from work, telephone, computer and time just for you. Who doesn't need baskets to use around the house or on the road? Neubert is a one-of-a-kind instructor and knows all the ins and outs of constructing baskets and is a veteran of this heritage craft. She is a weaver and president of the local Weavers Guild. She will make sure you have a great time while learning this art form. You will have a completed basket to take home.
Camp Horseshoe is located near St. George in Tucker County's Monongahela National Forest. Horseshoe's beautiful mountain setting, hiking trails and homecooked food will add to these special days.
