Hen Basket Class at Common Ground

Sample Hen basket by Sharon Schaeffer
Each afternoon I taught a group to weave a hen basket during week one of Common Ground on the Hill. The yearly two week event is held at McDaniel College.

It was a fun week of socializing and relaxing while learning a new craft.  Some class members were beginners while others had  experience weaving baskets, but not this style of  rib basket. 

Everyone selected colors and patterns to individualize their basket.  Friday evening all the baskets were on display as part of the Student Art Show.
