The Salt Spring Island Basketry Guild was formed in 1997 by a group of interested basketmakers and collectors. The Guild meets regularly to share basketry skills, educate members about the traditions of basketry, and encourage and inspire each other through:

  • guest speakers on basketry-related topics, such as the history of basketry, basketmakers' travels, and professional basketry artists and their work
  • hands-on learning of traditional and contemporary basketry techniques for all levels of experience
  • special workshops with well-known instructors
  • material gathering and preparation
  • field trips
  • social events
  • opportunities to show/exhibit work
  • information on basketry-related events offered by other groups
More detailed information on Guild activities can be found on this website, including this year's Program and upcoming workshops, how to become a member, a Guild history detailing past events, and links to Guild members and other basketry organizations.
