THE HILLS ARE ALIVE, WITH THE SOUND OF WEAVING!

It is with great excitement that we announce our 2018 Stowe Basketry Festival classes will be hosted at the Trapp Family Lodge!

Sadly, after being our classroom space for 26 years, Midway Lodge is undergoing renovations next spring and is not available. Instead, we will spend our days weaving at the storied Trapp Family Lodge, still owned and operated by the family that inspired “The Sound of Music!” We hope everyone is excited as we are about this lovely new venue!!  And, for those who hate to commute, Trapp’s has offered us a fantastic lodging package for basketmakers. If you listen closely, you'll note that the hills are indeed still alive with the Sound of Music!

THE JUDITH DRURY SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Due to the generosity of the late Judy Drury, a long time participant of the Stowe Basketry Festival, and her husband, Hal, there are funds available for a limited number of scholarships for deserving artists.

COME JOIN US IN WORLD FAMOUS STOWE, VERMONT

Study with and learn from our internationally renowned teachers as you enjoy  the beauty, charm, and history that makes Stowe, VT one of the nation's most  cherished year round resorts and getaway destinations.  More 200 years old, Stowe remains as enchanting as when visitors were first entertained before the Civil War!

 When not weaving and learning, visit Stowe's world class shops and restaurants, climb or drive  up Mt. Mansfield, Vermont's  tallest peak or enjoy the simple  splendor of a relaxing stroll along  our six mile paved community recreation path. Of course, no visit to Stowe would be complete without dropping in on one of our many breweries or wineries

THE ROUND HEARTH AT STOWE

Base of operations for 27th annual Festival, the uniquely designed Round Hearth will also host all participating faculty.  The Round Hearth Lodge, located right on  Stowe's famous Mountain Road, will serve as the focus of daily and evening activities,  informal gatherings, and scheduled evening events & mini-workshops.  During the full seven days of the STOWE BASKETRY FESTIVAL, budget accommodations & meals as well as all evening programming will be  offered at the Round Hearth. The lodge's open layout offers ample -- & bright -- workspace. As one of our own participatnes noted, "it's summer camp for basket makers!"
