Our guild was formed in Shawano, Wisconsin, in October of 1993 to foster the art of making handmade baskets and promoting the craft in the northeast Wisconsin area. Membership is open to anyone of any weaving level.
Annual dues are $20.
Guild meetings are usually held monthly January through November. There are no meetings in June, July or December.
Highlight of the year is the annual Fall Workshop held the last weekend in September. Guild members may participate in one or more special projects during the year, including donating baskets to a local cause or a display at a local library.
Members receive the quarterly newsletter “Splints from the Oak Woods.” They receive class/registration information for the annual Fall Workshop approximately 2 weeks prior to the general public. A members-only 1-day spring workshop will be held in April replacing the 4th Sat. regular meeting.
