I learned how to make baskets last summer and chose to do a bunch (probably too many) as Christmas presents. I’m chronicling this project here.

Thanks to my friend Kirstin for teaching me basketry, and to Historic Cold Spring Village for providing lots of time and materials to practice with!

I rely on Robin Taylor Daugherty’s book Split Woven Basketry for technique and sometimes design.

    Hi Nina,

    I am writing a book about gridshells – a specific form of weaving, applied on buildings. No commercial intention, just trying to share my passion for gridshells with the world through a publication. And I found a beautiful image of the completed bottom of a round indian weave basket on your blog. Since any budget I have is spent on publication costs, would you grant me permission to use this image in the book, if I mention your name in the credits?

    kind regards,
    Joyce Kuiken (the Netherlands)

      Yes, go ahead and include the image, as long as it is credited. I looked up gridshells and they are beautiful! Best of luck.
