DIY Homesteader Festival Workshop:

Natural Basket-Making

Cattails, bulrushes and other reed-like materials make surprisingly sturdy baskets that are great for gathering small things, insulating water bottles or even decorative flower pot cozies. Join Laura Reeves of Prairie Shore Botanicals to get a feel for various materials while she guides you through the creation of your own unique and functional basket! Materials will be provided.

Hands-on: Make a basket!

Accessibility: This workshop takes place in an outdoor shelter on grass or pine-needle forest floor (not as pokey as it sounds). We can have a desk and chair available at the workshop space upon request in the event it is not accessible for a participant to sit on the ground or on a hay bale.
