Baskets & Gourds: art, form and function


Bay Area Basket Makers Guild Exhibit

Opening Reception: Friday, January 6, 2017, 5 pm to 7 pm. Exhibit remains through January 29 Burnett Gallery.

Traditional techniques get contemporary interpretations as members of the Bay Area Basket Makers transform a variety of natural materials, handmade papers, found objects & uncommon fibers into vessels, baskets, and sculptural forms.

The Bay Area Basket Makers Guild (BABM) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1984 by two basket makers who saw the need for supporting and developing a growing interest in basketry as both craft and art form. The guild serves as a source of information and inspiration and provides a means of communication among basket makers.
