Saturday April 28th was our spring Woodland Pack Basket Workshop here at the CCM.  It was a great, hard working group and they all ended up leaving with a beautiful basket that is fitted with a harness so it can be worn like a backpack.  Here’s a peek of the finished product:

This style of basket found a prominent place in the history of the Adirondacks.  Here’s an archival photo from featuring a ‘guide,’ a ‘sport,’ and (of course) a pack basket:

Here are some photos from the workshop:

What a great way to spend the day!
