About The Guild 

 

History

 

Northeast Basketmakers Guild was founded in 1985 by a group of five Connecticut basketmakers. Since then, the organization has grown to include hundreds of artists. Members are predominantly from the northeastern United States, but now include artists from around the world.

 

Mission

 

The mission of Northeast Basketmakers Guild is to further the art of basketry by nurturing the development of new basketmakers, while celebrating and supporting accomplished basketmakers. Workshops, exhibits, demonstrations, basket sales, member conferences, scholarships, fundraisers, open weave events and the publication of a newsletter are included in the activities of the Guild throughout the year.
