Hearth Basket Making Class

The Town of Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce a Hearth Basket Class slated for Saturday, February 5, 2011 at the Long Lake Town Hall located at 1204 Main Street/Route 30 in Long Lake, NY. The class will be held from 9am to 4pm.

The class is taught by Long Lake native, Shea Farrell Carr, who took over the reins of Adirondack Basket Case from her mother, Patty Farrell, in 2009.

Shea will teach the basics of basket making and help students refine their weaving skills at this one day class. The hearth style basket is meant to hold newspapers and kindling, but can be used to store a variety of items, such as blankets and towels. Students will select colors to create their own unique basket. The base is 10” by 18” and finished dimensions of the basket are 20” wide by 14” high by 10” across. Cost, including all materials, is $50 per student. Please contact 624-3077 to sign up.

Shea Carr will also be at Long Lake’s 2nd Annual Adirondack Quilt Camp on Monday, June 27th. Pricing, registration and class descriptions for Adirondack Quilt Camp can be found at www.adirondackquiltcamp.com
