Sweetgrass Basket Weaving Workshop


Sweetgrass Basket Weaving Workshop

Join local artisan Sarah Edwards-Hammond for in-depth instruction on sweetgrass basketry which has been an integral part of the Lowcountry’s Gullah Geechee community since the 17th century. Edwards-Hammond comes from a long line of basket makers and has passed down the tradition to her family and others in the community. She will share a brief history of the artisanal craft of basket making.  Participants will then spend the remainder of the class making their own basket guided by Edwards-Hammond. Come learn about an extraordinary  craft that has been a staple of culture, art, and history in Charleston for centuries. All materials and instruction will be provided.
