To cultivate the next generation of Nantucket lightship basket weavers, the museum offers weaving classes to children ages 9 – 13. Each weaver is given the individual attention required to experience creating a basket like the ones made on the South Shoal Lightship. Join the fun! Beginner, intermediate and experienced weavers welcome.
