2020 program

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. 
All workshops are postponed indefinitely until we can meet again as a group (Chatham Cultural Centre is closed due to COVID-19). This website will be updated as required.
