WINGS Basket Weaving Event 2019
On Saturday November 16, 2019 St. Paul WINGS welcomed local basket weaving instructor, Rose Berry, to show us how to make a basket. A group of 18 ladies attended. We learned that basket weaving is something that is found in every nationality across the globe. Even monkeys have the skill set to weave together something that will allow them to carry things from place to place. Rose provided patient instruction and all the needed supplies for us to make personalized baskets. How interesting it was to see all the different designs and colors we all came up with! A free will donation was collected that Rose will forward to a non-profit organization and allow 8 children in Uganda, Africa to attend school for one year. Everyone who attended said it was interesting, fun, and that they would like to see more of this type of activity.
