This wine basket is a lovely basket that will carry 2 bottles of wine. It could be a special gift or something you use to go to a party in style instead of a brown paper bag! You will learn how to make a divider for the bottles as well as have the opportunity to make a “fancy” handle if desired. Students will be able to choose from a variety of colors or natural.
Please bring the following: measuring tape, sharpened pencil, a brick wrapped in plastic wrap, 12 large wooden clip style clothespins, old towel, scissors, pocketknife, a small regular screwdriver, spray bottle, pail or dish pan to hold 2 gallons of water, lunch, drinks and snacks. Please wear comfortable clothes. Proceeds benefit the Museum.
