Committed to spreading the art of basketry through educational programs, workshops and study groups. Supporting the basketry community and leading in the art of basketmaking by sharing our skills with others.
Founded in April 2003, the guild has flourished and become a dedicated group of basketmakers from a wide area, meeting 3rd Saturdays 9 am to 4 pm at the Chatham Cultural Centre. Each meeting features a basketmaking class where members share their skills with each other. Some of us are beginners, some of us are teachers, but all of us cherish the fellowship and sharing of knowledge that is a part of the life of a guild.
April workshop with Amy Jorgensen
Guild member Amy Jorgensen taught students how to make this special Easter bunny basket. Easy-to-make and a fun project for our workshop. Many grandchildern received homemade baskets filled with candy this year!
