Welcome to the Kentucky Basket Association website. We are basket weavers of all ages, from all walks of life, meeting on this common artistic ground.
The purpose of this organization shall be to:
1. Perpetuate the art of basketry 2. Educate members and promote interest in basketry 3. Emphasize the historic value and heritage of basketry 4. Promote excellence in basket materials and design
Basketry has always been part of Kentucky’s rich heritage. We hope you will find something here to help you pursue that interest further, delve into it deeper, learn and grow with it.
Within this site, you will find Guild listings across the Commonwealth, and weaving opportunities throughout the year. We hold an Annual Convention, bringing the finest gathering of instructors and vendors to our weavers. Membership is required to attend convention. Look around, and contact us if you have questions.
