Second day of the wall pocket antler basket class at North House Folk School begins today. The students are anxious to get started weaving the main body of their baskets after drilling the antlers and setting up the ribs or framework yesterday.
It’s again overcast and cloudy, with the temperature at 30 degrees this morning, but the harbor in Grand Marais is beautiful none the less.
We have a small, intimate antler basket class up here at North House Folk School this year, but I like it that way so I can give very individualized attention to all my students.
It’s a good thing the class is small, because this is a very ambitious basket for a beginner and we have one in this class, never woven a basket before! And everyone got to practice drilling their antlers,too!
We’ll keep you posted as to how these gals are doing in their antler basket class, but I think they are fantastic! Wouldn’t you agree?
