The Basket Makers

The basket workshop! 

The art of basket weaving is nothing to joke about.
 It takes years and years to become an accomplished artisan.

 When we first began here, we employed a master basket maker to come in and teach the skill to a group of young men and women. I had the silly idea that they would begin to produce the same quality that the master maker was doing. Eight years later, there is but one in that crowd that is even going to come close to that maker. It takes steady patience and an artist’s feel for working with the dry palm leaves!

 We work with three groups of makers to produce the baskets we offer here. Their work speaks for itself.
