Brown Ash Baskets: A North American Tradition | Edmund, Joan & Brian Theriault


We have been making baskets for over 50 years. Brown ash baskets have been around for a long time, and now with this book you will be able to see how we make our baskets along with other examples. The basket construction is a traditional way that has been passed on for many generations. We will take you to select the best trees which are key to making the best baskets. Mold making and our hand-made tools make basket making easier. The easy process of pounding methods for example, and getting the ash strips ready to be used will save you time and hard work. Weaving ways and on finishing the basket so it is a turn to a work of art is our goal in this informational document.

For father and son Brian J. and Edmond Theriault, making snowshoes has been a four-decade passion that has taken them from novices to world-class craftsmen. However, fearing that the art may be dying out among the wider population, the duo have written a book to help anyone create their own traditional snowshoes with relative ease.
