New Year - Learn Something New!

 It is always fun to learn a new skill or craft. If making baskets from natural materials intrigues you I know just the thing. Take a class from Jo Hart at her Wilderness Basketry studio out in Seabeck. Her 2012 class schedule is now available on her blog. Scroll down past her photos and you'll find a post listing classes for baskets, bowls, pouches, and even a hat!

"A basket is not really a basket, but a vessel created of beauty, joy, and happiness from a window in the soul, a reflection of love and a creative outlet to our ancestors of the past."
