The Adirondack Pack Basket is one of the most recognized objects associated with the Adirondacks.  Students will be weaving from the traditional ADK pack basket design, ending the day with a great pack ready for your hike or canoe trip.  This is a great intro size pack if you’re interested in learning how to make them, and can be worn by both adults and children.

Linda will demonstrate, teach you weaving techniques and guide you while you weave. Baskets will not be stained during class, but information on staining will be discussed.

Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a bag lunch.

*Note: Harness choice needs to be made two weeks prior to class to allow time for making. Choices are red/green/brown/black canvas or leather. 

Dimensions: 6” x 9” x 12” to 14”H (not including handle)
