Basket Weaving

It’s a Demo Day at the Macpherson House & Park in Napanee! On July 7th at 2pm join Naneen Tyner from Baskets by Naneen who will be demonstrating the beautiful art of basket weaving. Visitors will have the opportunity to participate in the workshop and create a one of a kind basket!

Self-taught, Naneen designs a lot of her own patterns and uses techniques from beginners to advanced. She dyes her own reeds in different shades and adds accents like leather and caning for a finished look. She also does customs orders of anything from blanket baskets, wine, muffin market to shopping baskets. Baskets by Naneen is an L&A County business, and you can find her on Facebook @BasketsbyNaneen.
Admission is free! Demo Days take place Tuesday and Thursdays in July and August under the event tent, on the parkland of the Macpherson House. For more information, call 613-354-3027.
