Hey, he asked if I needed help!! "Mr. Char"
I started making baskets about 1990 to keep busy after watching my youngest of 3 sons head off to Kindergarten! That class led to many more classes from a variety of instructors. I then went on to designing my own baskets! I began teaching "on the road" about 8 years ago and absolutely love it!! I am also an avid photographer. I take all the photographs used throughout this website.
Since 1995 I have helped organize and coordinate WinterWeave, a weaving conference in Mentor Ohio sponsored by Wildwood Basket Guild. This conference allows weavers from across the country to enjoy February weather in Northeast Ohio!! www.winterweave.com
Grandma, Aunt Lynn, and Joan with their baskets! Joan's first time, Grandma and Aunt Lynn, their second!!
Great job on D's Swing Basket!
This site is geared mainly for basket weavers with some experience.
The basket kits come with everything to make the basket yourself!
