After School Youth Weaving Class with DecArts Instructor

Learn to weave a lightship basket! Its never too early to begin a lifetime practice of this Nantucket tradition. Students will weave a 4″ basket with a rim. As students continue to weave in future sessions other techniques will be added as they advance in the weaving process.

This 6 week session for first time weavers is free thanks to the generous support of the Nantucket Golf Club Foundation.  Registration is required.

This class is for beginning youth weavers’ grades 3 – 6. Space is limited and available for first time weavers. Class is held after school beginning at 2:45pm – 4:30pm at the 1800 House, 4 Mill Street.
