The Adirondack Pack Basket is one of the most recognized objects associated with the Adirondacks.  These versatile baskets were used to carry just about everything the guides, hunters and trappers took with them into the woods.  Create your own pack basket patterned from the traditional Adirondack Pack Baskets. The Sightseer pack is a great size for teens or adult men and women.  

 

Students weave a plain weave base with the pre-cut spokes and then weave the sides. Linda will be guiding students as they concentrate on shape, creating a belly while learning to continuous weave. Once the main part of the pack is woven, students will pack baskets tight, level the top, weave a false rim, cut and tuck spokes, insert a handmade hardwood handle, and fit the rim to the basket, and lash rim.  Lastly, add an adjustable webbing or leather harness secured with skids.  

 

Suggested tools: pencil, tape measure, scissors, diagonal cutters, spring type clothespins, awl or Tupperware orange peeler, heavy duty packing tool, sand paper, cable ties, knife or scarfing tool, hand towel, soak bucket.

Linda will demonstrate, teach you weaving techniques and guide you while you weave your basket.
