Basketweaving Workshop with Patti Brousseau

September 17, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

This year Patti will help us create a gorgeous bread basket.  The basket measures 7” x 10” with a height of 5”.  It has leather handles that are 8” in length.  The pictured basket has a ribbon around its middle.

Patti also suggests that you bring your own bath-sized towel, clothespins, and an awl or screwdriver to help in the making of the basket.  If you would like your basket to have a ribbon, please bring a yard of ribbon not more than 1” in width.

Patti Brousseau has been weaving baskets since 1991 for her own pleasure but soon found she couldn’t stop weaving.  She soon started attending craft fairs with her baskets. After receiving so many requests to show others how to weave, she began to teach others the skills to create their own baskets. She finds great pleasure sharing her craft with others. She loves to see their pride in the baskets they have made.

Reservations are strongly recommended. Please call 845 338-5614, or email uchsdirector@gmail.com.

If you plan to join us for this workshop, please bring a lunch as this workshop will take place from 10AM until at least 2PM.  Participants work at their own pace and may finish before or after 3PM, but most will not finish before 2PM. Beverages and light snacks will be provided.

Fee to general public is $55, $45 for UCHS members.
