Ivy Basket Class with Jackson Bottom Wetlands

Peter Teaching.jpg

Today I taught a great group of folks out at Jackson Bottom Wetlands on how to weave baskets using the invasive species English Ivy. This is a signiture class that I have been teaching for years now, but I hadn't taught this particular one since last spring. The class went so well and all the baskets looked so great. I love seeing the ivy transform into a container. It is so fulfilling to be a teacher and environmental educator and ancestral skills practitioner–and to bring all those elements together with this program. I'm thankful to Jackson Bottom Wetlands for bringing me out there. If you are interested in having me come teach a basket class, drop me a line.
