Terry DeWald to discuss the ‘why’ of basketry at January Guild meeting

If you’ve ever thought about joining the Heard Museum Guild, the museum’s dedicated corps of volunteers, a general membership meeting is held on the third Wednesday of each month from September to April, except December. After a social from 9:30 to 10 a.m., a featured speaker takes the lectern from 10 to 11 a.m., followed by a business meeting from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Come and meet some of the people whose time, talent and energy are indispensable to making the Heard such a special place.

In January, the featured speaker is Terry DeWald.  Terry is opening the the Guild’s series of “Prepare for the Fair” lectures and discussions with the history of baskets in the Southwestern United States. He will lead us through the “why” of baskets, including similarities and base construction, patterns and materials, and include include overall values of various types of baskets.  He will talk about the Navajo/Apache/Tohono O’odham baskets as part of his discussion.
