Another Wonderful
Weekend in the Garden
Biennial Conference

Thanks to the teachers, volunteers and students who made this year’s 14th Weekend in the Garden a success!

If you missed this great event and want to see what you’ve missed, you can download a PDF of the CATALOG to review the wonderful learning opportunities that were offered during the 2019 Weekend in the Garden (CLICK HERE). It includes class descriptions, color photos, pricing, registration details, teacher bios and conference activity schedule.

We hope you will be able to join us for this wonderful, inspiring event in 2021 in the beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden (tentatively set for May 1 & 2). Details will be shared on this page as the instructors from around the country will be selected to share their expertise with you in both traditional and new, innovative basketry techniques and in gourd art crafting. There will be classes with the beginner in mind as well as the more advanced student. A members’ exhibit will be open to San Diego Botanic Garden visitors.


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.
