Arizona Basket-Making

While visiting the Tucson Botanical Gardens on Saturday, we came across a display on native basket-making. To me its fascinating to learn about basket-making techniques in the different places we visit. Click on the photo to learn about these local techniques.

More details follow here. When we visited the Navaho lands in the north of Arizona a couple of years ago, we also saw some ancient baskets made from willow.

Raw materials for basket-making come in so many different forms.
