Welcome! I'm so excited that you stopped by Attic Treasures Basketry today. I'm passionate about basket weaving and love to share the basket weaving tradition with others, mostly at the local level.
Nearly all cultures throughout the ages have made and used baskets for daily use and storage. Basketry is also an art form with endless possibilities for creativity and self expression.
We often forget that these traditions have been passed down from generation to generation often times defining the very culture in which various people lived. If baskets could only tell the stories about the hands that spent hours fashioning them...
In order to learn I attend classes, guild meetings, and each summer I participate in living history events. As I seek to grow in my knowledge of basket weaving, my main focus is for others to also learn about basketry. Please stop by my Living History page in the EVENTS menu if you would like to learn more about where I'll be demonstrating.
