Pack Basket Workshop with Gabriel Frey, Passamaquoddy

Date: Thursday Aug 04, 2016 - Friday Aug 05, 2016
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.


The Abbe Museum’s second basket workshop of the season features utility basketmaker Gabriel Frey. Gabe comes from a long line of fancy and utility basketmakers and uses his family’s traditional knowledge and style to create beautifully woven, sturdily built utility baskets that can be used for a variety of purposes. In this workshop, learn how to make Gabe’s famous market basket—a square-bottomed, oval-rimmed basket perfect for carrying small loads. A two-day workshop, students are required to attend both days in order to complete their basket.

Registration required, space limited.
