This basket is my variation of an Adirondack Pack Basket, one of the oldest  surviving traditions inside the Adirondack Park.  Students will use a continuous weave and  hand shaping to make this wonderfully useful basket   Students will learn a Shaker technique to create a solid bottom basket.  Shaker tape will be used to make strapping that mimics pack basket straps that will leave your hands free for blueberry  picking or any other type of gathering.  Approximate finished size: 10 – 12″ tall (width may vary).
