Venetian Society of Basket Weavers is a group of friendly people with talents from beginner to expert. Here is a place where each member has access to presentations, classes and a vast library of books related to all aspects of basket weaving.
Both the wild and tame areas surrounding the city of Venice FL contain many natural materials that have been used in basket weaving for centuries. Palm inflourescence, philodendron sheaths, vines, palm fronds, pine needles and many other sources are abundant and renew themselves continually in the lush growing season.
In the Venetian Society of Basket Weavers there are many styles used by the different members. From the strict standards of the Nantucket baskets to the wild abandon of naturals there is a style for everyone. And most of us are willing to try them all.
Come back from time to time and see what has been added. We will be featuring our baskets, weavers and some award winners.
