Brown Ash Basket Making Demonstration & Discussion
July 23, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Presented as part of our 2022 Watching the Seasons Change Event Series. This project is supported in part by a grant from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts & the National Endowment for the Arts.
Bill and Sherry Gould, citizens of the Nulhegan Band of Abenaki, will give a family-oriented talk about Abenaki basketmaking and will bring baskets (both finished and in-process) to show how they are made. As one of the main materials of basketmaking, ash trees are very important to basket makers. Unfortunately, increasing human population and the introduction of foreign invasive species has made it much harder to find healthy ash trees for basketmaking.
Bill & Sherry Gould live in Warner, NH. They were both born and raised in New Hampshire. They celebrate their Abenaki heritage and love making beautiful baskets. They celebrate their Abenaki heritage and love making beautiful baskets, creating both utility & fancy Brown Ash Baskets.
Free and open to all. Presented via Zoom and in person at the Museum of the White Mountains. If you are attending virtually, pre-registration is required. Click here for the Zoom registration link.
