Fall Baskets with Bridget VanRemortel

Join Bridget for a day of learning about traditional Appalachian basketry while weaving your very own fall basket.

“I have always loved creating with my hands in one way or another. I love to create with color and make something that is functional and useful. I enjoy being able to make something that can be used every day and fill a need.” – Bridget VanRemortel

Due to uncertainties created by COVID-19, we are no longer able to offer refunds for any workshop unless we can fill your spot. We will extend a 24-hour grace period immediately following the purchase of a workshop where a refund will be issued if requested by the student. Beyond that 24-hour grace period, refunds will not be issued under any circumstance. If you are issued a refund a check will be mailed for all your workshop fees minus a 3% processing fee.


Toe River Arts encourages collaboration in service of our mission and reserve the right to decide when and with whom we will have community partners. The reasons for these collaborations include boosting organizational efficiency, effectiveness and assist our community and partners with the sharing of resources, information, and ideas. Toe River Arts hopes these partnerships create a stronger group of organizations that can advance their stated missions and common objectives more effectively.
