The weaving of baskets is as old as the history of humans. Basket making is a skill and tradition found in many cultures around the world, passed down through generations. Creating with your hands is not only about the product, but also the people you meet, the stories you share and the skills you learn along the way. There’s something magical about a weaving circle that leaves you feeling calm, nourished and excited.
