In this Christmas-in-July virtual workshop with Kathryn Polletto of Kennebunk Basketry, participants will guide you through making a woven reindeer ornament. The reindeer will be woven with reed splint. Your kit contains enough reed and accessories (bells & string) to make two reindeer ornaments.

We will make one reindeer in the zoom workshop and if there is time we can make the second one together. If not, everyone will have a copy of the zoom recording emailed to make the second (and future) reindeer on your own. If you are not available to take the session at the specific date, you can still register and a kit will be mailed to you along with the recording link.
Level: This ornament is good for beginners and all levels.

All reeds and materials will be supplied in a kit that will be shipped directly to you.

Price includes shipping.

Class size: Minimum 5, Maximum 15

Kathy Polletto has been weaving baskets for over 40 years. She began weaving because she was very interested in 18th century history and she admired how utilitarian, everyday items were handmade with such skill. Basket making particularly intrigued her as she enjoyed working with natural fibers such as plant and wood-based materials. She is essentially self-taught. She learned by reading books, as well as by visiting historical sites and craft fairs to observe other craftsmen weaving. Eventually, she joined High Country Basketry Guild in Virginia. There she was able to learn other techniques working with other basket weavers. Kathy has a Facebook page and Instagram page under Kennebunk Basketry. She sells her baskets at Shaker Village.

Kathy is graciously donating all money from this workshop as a fundraiser for our Herb House Cultural Center project. Her donation, along with any that you’d like to add at checkout, will be matched 25% by a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This project, in part, will give Shaker Village expanded space for traditional arts workshops and communal events as well as, obviously, an expanded Herb House facility that will allow for us to produce, dry, and process more herbs in the traditional Shaker method. We are beyond excited for this project and thank you for your support!
