Other Events and Classes

We typically teach at least one basket weaving class each year. We will announce any upcoming classes on this page and on our Facebook page. If you are interested in arranging a basket weaving class for your group, or attending an upcoming class, please contact us via the contact page. We may be able to accommodate your request if time allows.

We have previously demonstrated basket weaving or chair caning at Maker Fest at the Wilmette Public Library in 2019-2020, the Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival in 2017, and at Pioneer Day at the Kishwaukee Valley Heritage Museum in Genoa.
