In this class, participants will construct a small wall basket known as a “weed basket” (the kind of basket you put dried flowers in to hang on the wall). They will use both flat and round reed and will learn lashing, twining, shaping, and the over-under weave.

Victoria Ohst is retired. She has been weaving baskets for over 20 years and has taught basket weaving at the Erie Canal Museum and other places. In fall 2007, Victoria taught a basket weaving class for SOAR.
