Claire Swanson’s basket weaving began as a quest for a unique Easter basket for her daughter in 1981. She had taken a class to make an egg basket, and from there Claire’s desire to learn more took root. Since then, she has taught her through trial and error, and a class here and there, to weave many numerous styles of baskets. Claire keeps striving to be a better weaver, and to help others to learn the craft.
