On Saturday, March 18th, basket maker Barbara Sadler will be offering 2 Easter workshops at Appalachian Arts Center. In the first workshop, participants will learn to weave a full size Easter basket. The class will begin at 10:30am and finish at 2:30pm, and will cost $45.00. The second workshop will begin at 2:30 and run until 4:30pm and participants will weave 2 Easter bunnies during that time. The cost is $25.00. All materials are including in the prices, and the projects are appropriate for beginners. You may sign up for one or both of the workshops.
