Basketry Video Playlists on YouTube
YouTube has interesting video clips on a variety of topics, but it can be more than a bit raunchy at times. I have put together a handpicked playlist of basketmaking video clips and present them here in a customized player just for basketmakers and collectors. Once you start the first video, run your mouse along the bottom edge of the player screen to preview or select from the full list. In addition you may choose to visit my YouTube Channel or BasketMakers Group. Although I have done my best to avoid inappropriate "popular culture" content, viewer discretion is advised.
