May 9th DAR meeting Features Basket Weaving

DAR member and basket weaver Ann Warren presented a very interesting program on basket weaving at the May 9th DAR meeting at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Southport, NC. She brought many samples of her beautiful baskets. Ann first became interested in basket weaving 40 years ago. She studied Nantucket Basket weaving and expanded her interest to making Shaker and miniature baskets. She attended the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown NC. Ann is a member of the Port City Basket Guild and the NC Basketmakers Association. She has organized a guild for Nantucket basket weavers in Eastern North Carolina. She has taught reed basket weaving locally at Brunswick Community College. Ann is a recipient of two Brunswick Arts Council grants to advance her skills, she continues to teach, collect, and exhibit her baskets. If you would like to contact Ann Warren you can reach her at .
