In this class you will learn some basic basket weaving skills and techniques. Using river reed in various sizes and colors, you'll create your very own little bird house.

As a craft interpreter at OFC, Whitman worked in gardening and the fiber arts, print, and basket shops in addition to the quilt shop. She explained, “I like variety!” and she enjoys the camaraderie of the Craft Village.
