More pics from the Basket Cottage in Georgia

Here are some leftover pics I took at Suzanne Marvin’s Basket Cottage outside Atlanta, Georgia…

Eric attaching the rims to Kathleen’s Mountain Bread basket…

Drilling holes for Miss Tracey’s mini basket…

I like this next pic because you know when a photo of Mr. Basketmaker is taken outside of his workshop because he brings out his fancy shirts…

Walking on my way to the Basket Cottage, I came across a huge circular spider web. You can barely see it since I snapped it with my iPhone but I still thought it was cool with the fall colors in the background…

An early foggy morning pic of the Basket Cottage…

FYI – Suzanne hosts many basket workshops throughout the year with various teachers. If you are ever interested, drop me a note and I will send you her contact info.

The Basket Cottage is out in the woods and on a lake and is a wonderful place to make baskets!

Quick Snaps of the City Pack Basket Workshop

We recently returned from one of Mr. Basketmaker’s workshop at the Basket Cottage in Georgia where students were challenged by making his City Pack Basket via free-weave. (That is… not on a mold and I think that’s what they call it!)

Here’s some of the photos I snapped…

Thanks Suzanne for a great workshop!!

Baskets & Fur

Eric’s summer workshops are in full swing. And our furry family members are delighted…

There’s a line of baskets waiting for Eric’s attention. Coco Kitty cut to the front of the line. This is her first “basket workshop” and she’s been loving all the chatter and activity—except for the fact that it also brings in the curious and annoying Jaxson into the workshop more than usual.
Speaking of the “beast” here is Jaxson looking for some attention from Mark and Joann. I think this is immediately after his “standoff” with Coco Kitty. Plus, it’s Thursday and there’s baskets to be finished—no time for canine affection.
But no problem for Chance who easily distracts Miss Ginger…
But not succeeding in distracting poor Mark who has a lot of work to do on his Apple Basket. Chance still hasn’t grasped the concept that students are not here for him.
However Chance is going to get ‘booted’ if he keeps getting in Eric’s way… But then again, all I have to do is walk out the door. I am hardly ever out of Chance’s sight.


Moral of this story? We started these workshops with one dog, Chance. Then Jaxson arrived. This year we have Coco Kitty. So if you plan on coming next summer, be prepared for another being… maybe a pet pig? Rabbit? You never know who will come roaming down our driveway as their ‘last resort’ in looking for a home.
