Stewart does a really nice job weaving. I met him at the Folklife Festival in San Antonio when we first moved here. He went for the bright colors this time.
Pam's backpack basket is woven of yellow cedar that she harvested and prepared herself in Alaska. This lady has a LOT of energy. Along with teaching basketry all over the world she also is a horse rider. Go Pam!
I really want to try this basket. It uses a method called tie twining. I bought a kit and will try it at home on my own. That way no one will know what the basket is supposed to look like so anything I do will be fine!
