The purpose of Our Basket guild is to stimulate interest in and perpetuate the art of basketry.
This guild was formed in 2002 in Austin, Texas and members have enjoyed weaving and learning together ever since. We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the teaching and sharing of basketmaking ideas and skills. Throughout the year the guild members participate in many events to stimulate interest in and promote the art of basketry.
