The sweetgrass basket is one of the most popular souvenirs to take home after a visit to South Carolina. Brought to the area by slaves who came from West Africa, basketmaking is a traditional art form which has been passed on in the lowcountry from generation to generation for over 300 years. Being handmade, no two baskets are identical. Learn more about this technique, the materials used and try your hand at starting a basket of your own.
Classes will be held at the Coastal Discovery Museum
