Lecture: Appreciating Baskets from Nature
with Pamela Zimmerman and Lynn Hoyt
Have you ever wondered what goes into the intricate art of basketry? Perhaps you have a special basket that’s been handed down in the family or found one in a thrift shop that you’d like to know more about? Join us for an interactive talk where we’ll share some basketry traditions and history through examples of natural materials and finished baskets from the US and around the world. Throughout history, basketmaking has relied on locally accessible materials that are gathered, hand-processed and formed with styles distinctive to the makers. We’ll explore some of these natural fibers and forms. Curious about a basket you own? Bring it and we’ll try to shed some light.
Free Event. AOP Concessions will be for sale.
