Sweetgrass Basket Weaving Workshop

The Charleston Museum

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. $75 Museum Members | $105 Non-Members Register online or call 843.722.2996 ext. 235
