Basket & Broom Making; Wheat Weaving     

Saturday, October 17    10:00am–4:00pm

Take a close-up look at the craftsmanship that goes into making a basket, a broom, and a bucket when the artisans preserving these trades visit the farm for a day of demonstrations and teaching. There will be opportunities to try your hand at some of the steps involved, and you’ll also learn about the skills workshops and classes offered at the farm throughout the year.
