New! Stop by the Seaport to Master Basket Weaver Mary May will walk you through this classic, working Pound Fishing basket. This basket is done with an “over one under one, square to round” construction. It has double lashed rims for sturdiness. These baskets were traditionally tarred for longevity, some painted with identifying marks, and have been used by commercial fishermen off Long Beach Island from the late 1800’s to 1940’s. Visit the Tuckerton Seaport’s Crest Fishery exhibit to see historical examples. Runners and 2 bushel handles are included in the material fee. The material fee of $65 will be paid directly to the artist on the day of the course.
Fee: $42 for members/ $47 for non-members, plus $65 materials fee
