The National Basketry Organization is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the ancient and modern art of basketry by promoting the art, skill, heritage and education of this traditional and contemporary craft.
Not only is it an organization for the basket maker, but for the collector, the novice weaver and those who admire baskets as well. Even though I am a painter, I enjoy reading about other craftsmen and the work they do so it is also a good resource for the studio artist in various mediums too.
If you are not an NBO member and/or you do not receive their email newsletter and quarterly magazine then you’re missing out on a valuable basketry resource along with their unique benefits! Also featured in their quarterly newsletter is a list of Upcoming Basketry Events brought to you by Basketmakers.com, a site edited by Susi Nuss. This is also another stop for invaluable information for everything basketry!
