Basketry Lesson


One of the best things about living in the jungle is the bounty of food and materials just waiting to be gathered. Things that break down into compost if left to decompose can be turned into beautiful things if gathered at the right time. The basket to the left can be made in an hour or two with a large needle and raffia or vines, coconut fiber and palm husks. Decorations like shells or lichens and seed pods can be added for an individual flair.

$75.00 per person (includes raffia and use of a raffia needle) all other materials are available for the taking in the jungle. *Weather Permitting!
