The Lost Arts Workshop Series, a new series of workshops sponsored by the Harlin Museum that focus on artisan skills and crafts from simpler times, debuted this weekend on Saturday, February 22nd in the Harlin’s lower-level classroom area. The workshop, taught by instructor Michelle Werther from Protem, MO, was a limited-seating workshop.
Five area ladies came to learn how to use rattan and oak to create a small market basket with a typical basket-weave method. The workshop, which cost $40 and included all the supplies for the price, began at 10 am and ended with five happy participants that leFt with lovely market baskets that they created themselves.
The Lost Arts Series will continue with other planned workshops, including Canning From Your Garden, Leather Working, Black-Smithing, Broom-making, etc, plus additional basket-weaving workshops. Watch our social media and website for future workshop announcements and let us know what kinds of workshops you’d like to see in this series!
