We had a great day working on pack baskets yesterday. Usually I have people gather the materials with which to carve their skids from the surrounding woods. But due to the deep snow and difficulty of getting around without snowshoes, I made these before the course started. It saved a lot of time, and the baskets were nearly done last night. Today we’ll be tightening up the weave, putting on the rims, and attaching the straps. The baskets being made are as good as any we’ve made in past workshops – these folks are doing an amazing job.
