The 9th Annual Members’ Basket Class Day  

We had a great time at our our annual members’ Basket Day on August 5, 2018!  It was a wonderful opportunity to try something new. We thank our fellow member teachers for taking the time to share their knowledge: Sue Kamin taught Lauhala (pandanus leaf) woven earrings; Willie Ziegler taught a cane cross warp twined with waxed linen over a bottle; Grace Swanson taught teneriffe/pine needle woven ornament; and Carol Lang taught an Appalachian egg basket.

The 13th Biennial Conference
"Weekend in the Garden"
at the San Diego Botanic Garden on
May 6 & 7, 2017

Despite the rain, a wonderful event once again took place in Encinitas, California!  Instructors from around the country came together to share their expertise in both traditional and new, innovative basketry techniques and in gourd art crafting.  Beginners and the more advanced student enjoyed challenging classes.  

We plan to hold another conference in May 2019, and details will be posted here regarding the date and content.  To give you an idea of what you might have missed, you can CLICK HERE to review the class catalog for the May 2017 "Weekend in the Garden."  

Many thanks go to the San Diego Botanic Garden (formerly Quail Botanic Gardens) for sponsoring this event and providing the wonderful venue and staff to make it all happen.  We are so very fortunate to have them as our event partner.  

We'll be holding another Weekend in the Garden event May 4 & 5, 2019.  Details will be posted on this page when available.
