Join Elizabeth Kligge at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust for our “Walk in the Wild” on Sunday, January 21st at 2 pm for a fireside chat and workshop in the Willoughby House. For thousands of years baskets have served as useful containers, custom-made for the task at hand. There are still many uses for baskets in the home and on the homestead. In our basket weaving talk and workshop, you will learn about three different types of baskets: coiled, ribbed and rectangular spoke-and-weave baskets. You will learn the foundational skills from which you can go on to make a number of different types of baskets from a variety of materials. Elizabeth Kligge grew up gardening and exploring the local wild places near Reading, Pennsylvania. She learned her first wild plants from her parents, near the creek that runs through their land and eventually went on to study primitive survival and teach her own workshops across the United States. She is an avid naturalist with a particular interest in tracking, hunter-gatherer, and homesteading skills. She is also a certified permaculture designer. We will meet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road in Blackwood Terrace, or you can put "340 Pine Avenue, Deptford" into your favorite mapping service. Please check our Facebook for changes and directions. Information and questions: Charles White, 856-217-9138. Car pooling recommended. Free and open to all. p.s. We have limited the number of RSVPs to accomodate guests arriving via other methods of advertising (newspaper, facebook, magazine ads). If possible, we will open up more spaces before the week is over. Hope to see you there!
