Basket Weaving

Betty Bain has always been enthralled with basket weaving. So, when a neighbor volunteered to teach her, she jumped at the chance and fell in love with the art form. Although Betty is mostly self-taught, she does belong to the North Carolina Basket Association where she takes and teaches classes once a year. Through this association, Betty has met many fascinating basket weavers from around the world and has learned many different styles and techniques of weaving.

Using woods such as ash, cane, reed, and white oak, Betty creates baskets that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are useful. She gives each basket a name in order to personalize and describe the use of the object. Betty uses dyes and acrylic paints to enhance her designs and stains or waxes the finished product.

Betty’s art is also available at the Rural Heritage Center in Thomaston.
