2.18.23 // Beginning Basketry w/ Candy Alexander // 12-3p
Join us Saturday, February 18th for an immersion into basketry! In this beginning level basketcraft workshop, we will be making a reed "mug" basket- a basket big enough to hold a couple of mugs + some tea. These little baskets are a great place to start, and make a darling gift! Candy will cover the basics of basketry- materials, weaving styles, and more. Price includes instruction + all materials. All levels welcome!
Candy Alexander is a retired teacher who has been making baskets for over 20 years. She is based in Kingsport, TN, but has travelled all over the southeast region teaching her craft. She has served on the board of the Tennessee Basketry Association and chaired the Tennessee Basketry Convention.
Location: Villagers in Burnsville (7 S Main St, behind the Nu Wray Inn)
In order to have equitable access, we offer all of our classes at a sliding scale as a way to make our classes more affordable to more people. The sliding scale is a simple tiered pricing system that allows people to choose the price they are able to pay, within a specified range. Pay what you can, no one is turned away for lack of funds.
Cancellation by Villagers:
If a class needs to be cancelled because (1) it does not meet the minimum number of registrations or (2) due to inclement weather, you will be notified by email 24 hrs in advance. Please check your email 24 hrs prior to class. For cancellations by Villagers, you will receive a full refund.
Cancellation by Student:
If you cancel within 48 hrs of the class, you will receive a refund in the form of store credit. Cancellations with less that 48 hrs notice are not eligible for a refund.
