Folk Schools Around the Country — Basketry and Seatweaving Classes

Very often I’m asked by viewers of my domain website,, just where they can go to take basket weaving and seat weaving classes offered by folk schools.

So here’s a list I compiled of some of my favorite folk schools for you to investigate. Some are very old and been around for over 50 years and some are relatively new on the scene, but all are well respected and utterly wonderful!

Sign up soon to partake in week-long or weekend classes, then get back to me with what you discovered! And if you’ve already experienced some of these folk schools, be sure to leave your comments after this post!

Of course there are more, but this should whet your appetite and give you a good start on your weaving education. Enjoy!
