Basketry is among the most ancient crafts of all humankind, weaving people back into the surrounding ecosystem. I offer readymade burial baskets and also welcome the opportunity to weave alongside those preplanning their funeral. Weaving a funerary basket can be a wonderful healing process for individuals and a meaningful place-based practice fostering deeper connection to life, death, and the living world."
