Brenda Atchley, a basket maker from Forest City, will have some baskets in TACS’ holiday gift show running concurrently with the workshop and in the gift shop. She specializes in miniature baskets that are crafted from natural reed, cane or black ash with found object closures. Atchley started making baskets about 10 years ago and became very serious about the craft after taking classes through the North Carolina Basket Maker’s Association.
Advance registration for all workshops is required. For more information about the instructor or workshop, including tuition and supply costs, contact TACS at 828-859-8323 or by email at tryonartsandcrafts@windstream.net.
