Make a Basket from a Tree
Estel Youngblood is a third generation Appalachian basket maker. Join him as he demonstrates his craft and shares his folksy anecdotes at a basketry workshop in California. Starting with white oak logs which were brought with him from Tennessee, you will watch the splitting of the log, whittling the ribs, splitting out the handle, tying the bow to attach the handle to the rim, splitting the weaver strands, and the weaving of the basket. There are long detailed close-ups so you can carefully watch and learn the process. A fascinating film and a tribute to an American craft.
Splint Basketry Weaving I

Technical tips solve many problems you might encounter and inspiration for other splint baskets concludes the course. Award winner at the 17th National Educational Video Conference 1987.
