LOWELL | Basket Workshops at Buckley Homestead County Park are offered by experienced teacher Julie Duttlinger, who returns to the farm each summer. Participants are guaranteed a finished basket by the end of one class.

Two classes are offered for each basket. Bring a 3+ gallon bucket, 8 clip clothes pins, an old pair of scissors, a pencil, tape measure or ruler, awl or small flat screwdriver or knitting needle, and an old towel and a spray bottle for water. Wear work clothes.

If under 15, it is recommended that parents stay during the workshop. The classes last through lunch so bring a sack lunch and a cold drink. Reservations and payments are needed in advance to order supplies.

The “Joyful Basket” will be made from 9 a.m. to  1 p.m. June 12 or 14. This basket features an 8-by-8-inch solid woven bottom, 5” sides with designed wrapped handles, and lots of color. This is a 4-H Level B project.

The $34 fee includes materials, and reservation and payment is due by Friday.

The “Twill Bucket” can be made from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 10 or 12. This basket has an 8” twined, round bottom and colored twill weaving on the 8” sides with wire handle. It is a 4-H Level C, D project.

The $34 fee includes materials and reservations and payments are due by June 20.
