Great Basin Basketmakers
The mission of Great Basin Basketmakers is to make baskets, learn everything possible about the traditions and techniques of basketry and to pass this knowledge onto others.
Just Patterns magazine is published quarterly and every issue contains five or more basket patterns guaranteed to get you weaving - either on the featured projects or on your own ideas inspired from seeing and learning new techniques.
Personally, basketry has allowed me to develop from flat handwoven interior fabrics to three-dimensional shapes. Previously, my focus was with baskets woven with hand dyed reed and local natural materials such as black ash, cedar bark, birch bark, cattails and sweet grass.
