Basket Workshops with Karen Wychock

Wall Basket Saturday May 6, 2023 9:30am – 3:30pm (Ages 18+)

Is the junk mail piling up on your kitchen counter or your entryway table? This mail basket could be the secret to turning your pile of mail into a legitimate design statement. It can sit on your kitchen counter, fit right over a door knob or even be wall mounted! It also looks great filled with flowers on your front door!

The basket measures 10” long x 3” wide x 10” high (can be taller). It is a reed basket with an oak handle. Dyed reed (red, green, blue and black) will be available to create pattern and design within the basket.

$60 + $30 materials fee payable to the instructor at the time of class.

Karen was an art teacher for 22 years in the Neshaminy School District before becoming a middle school principal for 15 years in both the Neshaminy School District and the Central Bucks School District. She is a member of the Bucks County Craftsmen’s Guild, the PA Guild of Craftsmen and the Handweavers of Bucks County. She has sold her work at various shows and galleries throughout the northeast (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Virginia, and Ohio). She is currently president of the Penn-Jersey Basket Weavers Guild. As a group, we offer our members classes, workshops, and trips centered around our love of basketry. Aside from teaching basketry at my home studio, I have taught at the Mennonite Heritage Center in Harleysville, the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA, Washington Crossing Park and at the Waterford, Virginia Craft School.
