Basket-weaver Charlie Kennard presents and discusses a wide variety of his baskets made from plants he grows or gathers locally. Charlie’s passion is the time-tested indigenous basketry of the western U.S., Europe and East Asia, and the deep knowledge of native plants that is inherent to it. This is a rare opportunity to see many of his baskets in the round!
