Come get into the autumn spirit at Appalachian Arts Center!
On Tuesday, September 20th from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Barbara Sadler will be teaching an 'Indian Corn' basket weaving workshop. The class is a beginner level class, and no prior experience with basket weaving is required. The cost of the class is $35 per person, and includes all materials. By the end of the workshop, each participant will have completed three woven 'cobs' of Indian Corn, gathered with ribbon and topped off with festive embellishments. Ready to be used a centerpiece, on the mantle or hung upon a door for fall flair, this craft is fun to create, and will be enjoyed for years to come! Instructor Barbara Sadler learned basket weaving from her paternal grandmother, who learned it from her mother. Barbara has passed it down to her daughters, keeping it in the family for over 100 years; she loves to teach and make baskets for people.
