Recorded April 30 2020. During this episode of Cut the Craft, we speak with to April Stone, a Black Ash basket weaver from the Bad River band of Ojibwa in Northern Wisconsin. April guides us through the entire process of harvesting, preparing the splints and then weaving baskets. She shares what she’s learned through the process: not just how to weave, but the healing that can result through handwork. To see more of April’s work check her out on instagram @april.l.stone. April’s craft crushes include Jonathan Klein, JoAnn Kelly Catsos, and Gabriel Frey.
