Instructor:
Bob Antonishak
Skill Level:
Some basket weaving experience preferred but not required
This workshop will include the use of all necessary tools, mold, cane, and reed to complete a Nantucket basket ready for finishin
g.  The mold size will be between 3 and 5 inches with a solid cherry rim and base.  It is not necessary to have basket making experience but would be helpful.
The Nantucket style basket is made on a mold using cane and reed material.   The weave is tight and with narrow spacing between the staves.
The first true Lightship Baskets were made in the mid- to late 1800s aboard the Lightship stationed on the
Nantucket Shoals
. The first Lightship Station on the Nantucket Island Shoal was established in June 1854 and crewed by six men.
[4]
Deployments aboard the Lightship often lasted for 30 days and the crewmembers generally had little to do.
[5]
The earliest Lightship Baskets begin appearing in the 1860s and are generally of more utilitarian form. The first purse style basket with a lid was made by Lightship Captain Charles Ray (1798–1884) and is relatively similar to the type sold today. Lightship basket bases, rims, and staves tended to be made on-island, with lightship crewmembers bringing these items on board the ship to do the actual weaving, and help pass the time. The molds were originally made from old cut-up ships’ masts.
