Sweetgrass Basket Weaving Workshop

Join local artisan Sarah Edwards-Hammond for in-depth instruction on sweetgrass basketry which has been an integral part of the Lowcountry’s Gullah Geechee community since the 17th century. Edwards-Hammond comes from a long line of basket makers and has passed down the tradition to her family and others in the community. She will share a brief history of the artisanal craft of basket making. Participants will then spend the remainder of the class making their own basket guided by Edwards-Hammond. Come learn about an extraordinary craft that has been a staple of culture, art, and history in Charleston for centuries. All materials and instruction will be provided. Space is limited. Reservations required. $75/members, $105/non-members. For more information and to register, call 843.722.2996 ext. 235 or visit: https://www.charlestonmuseum.org/news-events/events/sweetgrass-basket-weaving-workshop-18/.
