Shaker-Style Cathead Basket

Shaker Cathead Basket

1 day class

Cathead baskets were designed by the Shakers to hold produce. Weave your own Shaker-style basket with hand-pounded black ash splint. Use a Nantucket mold to shape the sides and learn to bring the corner spokes together as you weave to form the catheads on the bottom of the basket.  Insert a handle to the outside of the basket and double-lash the rim. You will take the basket you make home with you.

This class is from 9 a.m – 5 p.m.

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.

All our classes close 24 hours before the class date with the exception of classes that start on Monday, which will close the Friday before. If there's a class that closed early that you'd like to attend, please call us at 254-754-9620 to check for availability.
