Adirondack Pack Basket Weaving Workshop

Come join us for a full day of basket weaving at the beautiful Willow Crossing Farm, home to the Medicine Womyn's Retreat and Prospect Rock Pemaculture Design Project. In this baset-weaving intensive, everyone will make and leave with their own hand-crafted Adirondack Pack Basket, a basket that dates back to the 1800s, and was originally used for carrying heavy loads while trekking, hiking, hunting and trapping in the Adriondack Park Region.

Basket weaving is a way to connect with our ancestral lineage, it is an allowance to sit together and tell stories, to commit to making slow and honoring the process. Come enjoy a fun and meditative day in the farm's yurt to learn a new skill and leave with your own pack basket for use in garden, forest, farm, or mountain.
Snack and tea will be provided. Please bring a pot-luck dish to share, a pencil, a flat head screwdriver, and scissors.
