A tisket, a tasket - market baskets made easy

LUDLOW - The Black River Acaemy Museum (BRAM), located at 14 High St. in Ludlow, will host a basket class on July 31, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Students will be making a large market basket.

It will be woven with 1/2-inch-long flat reed, a white oak "D" handle, flat oval rim, sea grass filler, and 1/4-inch-long flashing. There will be colors for accents and the cost will be $60.00 per person. Attendees should bring a bag lunch.

The class is being taught by Susan Langley, a Chester resident and a Physical Therapist at Springfield Hospital. Susan began weaving 20 years ago when she purchased a "How to.." booklet with basket patterns. Susan is a member of the Society of Vermont Artists and Craftsmen and a board member of the Northeast Basket makers Guild.

To register, call The Black River Academy Museum at 802-228-5050.
