Basket Weavers
Posted by Byron Movement on 2012-06-12 20:04:48.0

The Wakeup Time Group of basket weavers meet once a week. What happens there is more than a continuation of an ancient art, its womens business. Women councelling and being there for women. 

In traditional times, women would go out and find materials to weave. Baskets were important because in their Nomadic times, it was the way the Original People could carry things. Now the continuation of the skill is fostering friendships and creating community and the women weave together the beauty of the past and the dreaming of the future.
