Decorative Ash Basketry

Course Overview

Clyde is a third generation basketmaker from White Earth, Minnesota, who learned to weave black ash from his father, who had realized that the tradition was being lost and learned the craft from his mother-in-law. The intricate baskets have been made and sold for generations in his community. In this course, students will use prepared material to weave a square to round basket with handles. Clyde will bring a variety of dyed black ash for students to use to embellish and personalize their work.  Clyde will be joined by Courtney Olson, who has been studying with Clyde to learn these traditions. Students of all levels welcome. Finished basket will stand 10-12” high.

This couse is part of Basket Week 2019! Plan to arrive a day early for the Basket Gathering on Friday, October 25 for demonstrations, talks and community gatherings.
