A tisket, a tasket, learn to weave a wicker basket: August 26

Watch this type of basket being made

Watch this type of basket being made

Basket weavers will be busy on Saturday, August 26th, and the Albert County Museum. Drop by and watch them at work and learn how to weave a wicker basket.

We will use willow branches to make a functional basket - the type that could be used to gather food from the field or the forest.

An Acadian basket weaver and three other weavers (with varying levels of experience) will demonstrate how to make a basket from willow branches. This free demonstration will begin at 10am and finish at 4pm. Feel free to drop in at any point, or several times, to see the process, take pictures and ask questions.

Feel free to visit the museum garden as well and ask the Museum Gardener, Janet Wallace, questions about organic gardening.

Apprenez comment faire un panier en tiges de saule. Venez observer des vanniers. Posez des questions et prenez des photos.
