Take a class with Peter Finch and learn the history and appreciation of the Nantucket Lightship Basket! Our classes are ideal for beginners and advanced basketmakers alike. The most important skills you can bring to class are attention to detail and patience.

Take a Class | Make A Nantucket Lightship Basket

Our 3-day classes are ideal for all experience levels. Peter personally teaches each class and will take you through the entire lightship basket weaving process. These classes run Tuesday – Thursday from 9am – 3pm. Although the classes are not ALL day in length and may offer some flexibility, there is a serious commitment of time required, as with all things worthwhile!

Please click ‘Sign Up’ below to inquire about our Nantucket and Venice classes. We can’t wait to see you in class!

While we have many, many repeat students, we also love introducing our art to new friends. We offer classes on Nantucket from June through October and in Venice, FL from January through April.
