Pre-booking is required.

You’ll be weaving with local ash wood from our PEI forests; decorating with your choice of Wild Cherry bark, sea kelp, or bull rush. We also offer reed basket weaving.  You’ll be taught by professional basket weavers who are connected to a history that dates back to the late 1800’s here on PEI.

We guarantee that you will leave with a beautiful basket created by you!
