Basket Making Workshop


The Schoharie River Center presents Beverly Cornelius, who will lead this one day workshop on Sunday July 15 (from 8:30am - 5:30pm).  Beverly Cornelius works in both ash and reed to create her baskets and is influenced by Native American and Shaker styles.  


Students will complete a traditional corn washing basket using reed. This utilitarian basket was used to rinse white corn, which has to be boiled and rinsed 3 times before it can be cooked. The basket was used the way we use a strainer or colander today.  Aside from washing corn this basket is great for storing yarn or magazines.


Students will use a continuous weave to build this 8”tall square base to round basket.  This reed basket will be hand shaped.
