Sweetgrass Basket Weaving Workshop
Join local artisan Sarah Edwards-Hammond for in-depth instruction on sweetgrass basketry which has been an integral part of the Lowcountry’s Gullah Geechee community since the 17th century.
Edwards-Hammond comes from a long line of basket makers and has passed down the tradition to her family and others in the community. She will share a brief history of the artisanal craft of basket making. Participants will then spend the remainder of the class making their own basket guided by Edwards-Hammond.
Come learn about an extraordinary craft that has been a staple of culture, art, and history in Charleston for centuries.
All materials and instruction will be provided.
Space is limited. Reservations required.
