Letter Basket Workshop

Meeting Place: Lakeview Room of the Visitor Center
9:00 am - 11:00 am
Registration: $40.00
The 1800s brought many emigrants to the river valley; these pioneers had to learn to live off the land. Basket making, using natural materials such as honey suckle and button brush, was an important task for every pioneer. Baskets can made to serve utilitarian purposes or for decoration. Weave your own basket in this hands-on class and reflect on those who lived in this area before it was a state park. Bring a sack lunch or plan to visit a local restaurant. The fee covers the cost of materials. Class size is limited, preregistration is required. Come prepared to get a little wet and watch your basket take the shape of ears of corn before your eyes.
