Pat Hickman gives the closing lecture for All Things Considered IX: Basketry in the 21st Century, presented by the National Basketry Organization at the Society of Arts + Crafts in Boston, Massachusetts. Pat recounts the evolution of basketry as an art form through the work of four pioneering basket-weavers, her own cohort of boundary breakers and her life-long friends. She gives a touching tribute to these individuals, emphasizing the critical roles they played in shaping basketry in the 21st century.
