Annual Retreat

Great Basin Basketmakers Annual Retreat

 May 16th - 19th, 2017



            We will be gathering on the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe at Zephyr Point Conference Center for our 9th annual retreat.  During the opening evening we will be sharing our skills for making embellishments. In past years we have hammered copper rings, made paper beads and had fun hammering bottle caps. Anything goes, so if you have a fun embellishment to share bring it.   Thursday night will be the silent auction and basket raffle, everyone attending the retreat is encouraged to contribute a basket or related basketry item.

       The cost for this year's retreat is $275 (double occupancy), this includes lodging, meals, and classes.  If you prefer a private room there will be an additional cost.   Make your checks to GBB.   The class material fees are payable to the instructors.   The last day to register and pay is April 6, 2017.   If you are not able to attend the monthly meetings you can mail your checks to:  GBB, PO Box 11844, Reno, NV 89510-1844.
