Spend an afternoon with Pamela Rackliffe Capurso and learn the art of basket-making on July 12 from 1-4:30 p.m. at the Wilson Museum’s Hutchins Education Center. Each participant will go home with a beautiful and functional basket made by his or her own hands. The $65 course fee includes the materials needed to make a 21″x14″x7″ market basket and each participant will be provided with a printed instruction sheet that can be used to create more baskets at home. Registrants will be given a short list of equipment to bring with them to the workshop. Space is limited to eight participants. Preregister by July 8.
For 34 years, Pamela Rackliffe Capurso was a florist and horticulturist before she sold her business in 2006 and moved with her husband to Goodnight Farm in Brooksville, where they grow a variety of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. She began weaving simple baskets to sell at local farmer’s markets. As she has grown more proficient at basketry, Pamela has continued to develop the form and function of her baskets. Pamela sells her baskets and other handmade items online, at the local farmer’s market, and the Wilson Museum Store. You can visit her website at www.basketsofmaine.com.
