Build your own Pack Basket


  • Holistic Survival School 38 McDaris Cove Rd Weaverville, NC 28787 (map)

Weaving is one of those crafts that once you begin, you just don't want to stop. We are offering this class in response to the call for a longer session in basketry, to dive a bit deeper into weave patterns, and create a multi-functional vessel that you will become your new travel companion.

Join us for two full days as we weave up ourselves an old-timey pack basket; one that is light, durable, and comfortable on your body to be able to put on many trail miles. We will use flat weaving material, a combination of reed, black ash, and hickory bark. This is an opportunity to make a backpack that is completely custom to your body and artistry. Come hang out with us for a full weekend of crafting and dive deeper into the meditation of weaving!
