Lu Howard, basket weaver

Learn to create your own basket with basket weaver Lu Howard's guidance. Lu is well-known at the Gardens for her basketry, so you will learn from a master. Everyone will work on the same 8-inch rectangular basket with a handle, which is useful as a market basket. At the end of the day you will have a basket to take home and enjoy. Please dress to get messy; bring an old towel and an awl or narrow, flat-blade screwdriver if you have one. Class fee includes all other supplies and equipment. Meet in the Doris Duke Center. Participant limit:12. Information/registration: 919-668-1707 or Sarah P. Duke Gardens, 420 Anderson St., Duke University, Durham.
