Adirondack Pack Basket Class

The Adirondack basket has been around for many decades. During the 19th and 20th centuries in the Adirondack Mountain area of New York State, the Iroquian-Mohawk and the Algonquin Native Americans perfected the art of making these Black Ash baskets to use for themselves, but also for the "city sportmen", the loggers, and the hunters. The basket's hard shape made it a favorite among trappers due to the ease of loading and unloading traps and pelts.

Join Sarah Auer as she instructs and guides you to create your very own pack basket. Although traditional Adirondack pack baskets were made of Black Ash by which the wood was soaked in water and hand pounded to loosen the layers of annual growth, in this class, reed will be used to weave the basket.

All materials and necessary tools provided. Join 2 weeks before class starts for your choice of strap color. Tan, olive or red.
