The Columbia Basin Basketry Guild connects basket weavers, collectors, and enthusiasts from across the Pacific Northwest's Columbia River basin and beyond. We invite you to learn more about the Guild and how we can help enrich your own interest in basketry. Thank you for visiting.
The 2019 Tidal Twinings Retreat Brochure is HERE!
Come and join us for five days of weaving classes, activities, and good conversation at Camp Magruder, located off Hwy 101 in Rockaway Beach, a beautiful spot on the Pacific Ocean.
Our featured teacher is Gullah basket weaver Lynette Youson. Lynette is a fifth-generation basket weaver from the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Lynette is dedicated to sharing this ancient art form brought to the United States by her ancestors as slaves from Sierra Leone in West Africa. One of her Rice Fanner Baskets is on display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC.
Retreat registration deadline is June 29, 2019.

Guild members work in a variety of materials and styles. Sharing our work with other basketry lovers brings inspiration, creativity, and new connections.
