Guild Listings

NBO works to support the many guilds throughout the country and in Canada. These guilds are the bedrock of basketry education, offering a local or regional welcome to people interested in basketry. Each guild is independent and plans its own programs, welcoming new members and visitors alike. Following is a compiled list of the many guilds and their locations, along with the website or Facebook link for contact information. We encourage you to contact them if you are a beginner, an experienced basket maker, or a collector of baskets and traveling through the area, or looking for a basket community after a new move. If your guild is not included on this listing, please email your guild name, location and web link and/or Facebook address to Our goal is to include all of the diverse basket weavers and their guilds across North America!
