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.
Our 2020 Scheduled Meetings
As a group, we weave various baskets together bi-monthly. Members can bring their own weaving project or weave the group project. We love visitors! There are many members who can help you with your weaving project. The application & membership forms to join our basket guild can be found on the Membership Form page.
You can contact Elizabeth Smith, our newsletter editor, as she mails out the group project information ahead of time by going to our Membership list.
