Antler Basket Art Presentation at Ely Library

On March 2, 2011 at 6 p.m. I will be speaking about my craft of antler basketmaking at the Ely Minnesota Public Library as the first of a three part series at libraries across the Iron Range.

In December of last year I was honored to be contacted by an Arrowhead Library System board member to see if I’d be interested in giving the presentations included as part of the Arts and Cultural Heritage Library Legacy and the Minnesota State Arts Board.

I love sharing my art with others so this lecture will be lots of fun to do. Weather is supposed to be fairly cold, but all of the folks living in Ely are well used to that!

The audience attending my presentation will get a close-up view of the baskets and short demonstration as to how the antler “speaks” to me, telling me what shape and design the basket is to be. I’ll also be bringing some baskets in various stages of completion so they can see what the weaving process encompasses.

So, if you are in the Ely, Minnesota area on Wednesday, March 2nd, please stop and say “Hello” at the Ely Public Library at 30 South First Avenue East or call (218)365-5140 for more information.

This project was funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s art and cultural heritage.

  1. Hi Cathy,
    Al from Gulliver days. If you find this drop me a line. I go fishing at lake Vermilion in Sept.
    every year. Hope to hear from you,

    1. Well Al,

      It’s so nice to hear from an old friend from Rochester area and Gulliver’s Restaurant! Wow, what a small world that you come up to Lake Vermilion, too! That’s just a hop, skip and jump away from our place. Be sure to give me a call or email before you come up in September so we can get together and you can see our place. Keep in touch!
