I Also Expect…

… to make a black ash pack basket at this upcoming workshop, led by Nate and hosted by us. Space is limited, so sign up soon!


Make your own pack basket from a tree the old-timey way. We’ll pound on a black ash log until the layers start to separate, strip them into long weavers, and rearrange them into shape as we please so as to best make a useful container to wear on our backs and put things in.

Black Ash pack baskets are remarkably durable, surprisingly comfortable, and incredibly useful. I use mine on a daily basis for such things as mushroom gathering, hiking, canoeing, holding things that I buy (“shopping”), picninc-ing, camping, wandering around, and carrying beavers. Wearing a pack basket is also a good reminder that life is in fact not the least bit boring.

Friday – Sunday, August 8,9, and 10

$175 fee, advance payment required.

To sign up email me (Nate Johnson)
