Underwater Weaving and Lingua Franca invite you to weave a May Basket at the Lingua Franca Townhouse located at 95 Jane Street at 6pm on April 23.

REVIVING A LOST TRADITION
Once a popular custom, May Basket Day marked the start of spring with an innocent act of courtship and kindness. At the end of April, communities would gather flowers and sweets in baskets for admirers, friends, and the elderly. On May 1, the basket would be placed on the recipient's doorstep, and a chase would begin and end with a kiss!

In our workshop, we will weave a rattan hand basket, arrange seasonal florals, and add a personalized Lingua Franca ribbon with embroidered initials. Enjoy light bites, refreshments and creative company.
