Create a Mellon-shaped Egg Basket using the construction techniques of South Central Kentucky's traditional basket makers. Workshop pre-registration is required. Cost is $75 Members and $85 Non-members. Workshop runs 9am-4pm. Students will learn the Kentucky-style 'eye', carving ribs, rib placement, the addition of secondary ribs and weaving. We'll discuss rib basketry and how to achieve a variety of shapes. Materials for this class are oak hoops and reed ribs and weavers. If you own an egg basket, please bring it along to share its story with the class. While at the Museum, be sure to visit Standing the Test of Time: Kentucky's White Oak Basket Tradition exhibit.
