10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Rolling Ridge Study Retreat (near Harpers Ferry, WV)

Organize your creative chaos in the art of the random weave basket — a beautiful,  sculptural design with endless possibilities for experimentation and play. In this workshop, you will learn how to identify wild plants in the local landscape and take them from the field and forest to a completed basket. Each person should leave with a basket either complete or far enough in process to confidently finish at home. All experience levels are welcome, and kids are invited to attend with the supervision of an accompanying adult. (There is no cost for kids ages 12 and under.)

$75; scholarships are available

What to bring:

  • Hand Pruners or a sharp knife (there will be a few spare ones for use)
  • Lunch and snacks
  • Water bottle

Instructor Luke Bauer is a basket maker, forager, woods wanderer, educator, and permaculturist. He has been working at connecting himself and others to the local landscape for more than a decade. He leads workshops on basket-making, plant identification, ancestral skills, and wilderness awareness.
