Full Day

9 am to 4 pm


Class description


A-tisket, a-tasket, let's make some little baskets!


In this class, Ken will guide you through the challenges of wood burning miniature baskets. You will start by wood burning a small, 2.5 to 3 inch gourd basket, then you'll move on to a mini "spinner" gourd basket.

These little baskets are perfect to add to a terrarium or display in your curio cabinet. They make nice gifts as well.

Ken will supply the gourds and all the supplies needed to accomplish your basket gourds--you just bring your wood burning tool.

What you are required to bring


Just bring a "wire-tip" style wood burner along with your burning pens and tips and a desire to make art and have fun.


Note: "Solid-tip" style wood burners will NOT work for this class. Contact Ken at if you have questions about your wood burner or the burning tips.
