Twenty-five students spent two days with nationally known basket maker Martha Wetherbee.
Wetherbee and husband Alan Litchfield returned to Hodgenville Friday and Saturday for the third workshop in a series of four that provided materials and instruction in creation of the “Lincoln Bicentennial Penny Basket” set.
Most of the students were working on the third basket that features the Illinois penny. Two completed the first in the set – the Kentucky years and one completed the Indiana penny basket that was offered first last year.
