Make Bucket Panniers at Homespun

From EBBC:

This class will teach you the basics of making bucket panniers from reclaimed plastic buckets.
Versatile and waterproof, they fit easily onto any rack. Get crafty, design the exterior of the bucket with wood or cloth. We’ll provide the buckets and hardware and have some scraps of wood and cloth, but bring what you would like to experiment with for bucket decor.

Taught by Ami, our very own mechanic here at Homespun.
