Nantucket Lightship Baskets are distinctive handmade baskets originating over 150 years ago. They were first created by the crewmen of lightship vessels, as a way to pass the time at sea. The Nantucket Basket’s labor-intensive construction is characterized by several distinctive features. They are hand woven using rattan or cane onto wooden molds with wooden bases. The Nantucket handbags are decorated with carved or scrimshaw pieces.
All supplies and materials will be provided by The Studios of Key West.
