The Southwestern Ontario Basketry Guild is proud to present the basketry workshop schedule for 2020.  The blog will be updated as teachers, descriptions and photos become available.  The year promises to be filled with new processes and techniques and a wonderful weekend full of basketry activities.  January 18, 2020 No workshop this month.
