Basketry at the Sogn Valley Craft Fair--Jill and Paul Scarpari

Paul and Jill Scarpari both love the craft of basketry and have been weaving for fifteen and twenty years, respectively.

I enjoy creating baskets using all types of basket weaving techniques-flat, rib, coiling and even twills. Paul concentrates on flat weave and especially larger baskets that are useful in the home. We both agree that baskets are meant to be used, that is the tradition of basketry-useful art.--Jill Scarpari

The Scrapari's business, Scrap Baskets has a wide variety of baskets available-from bread baskets to hampers to wine carriers and sculptures.

Find the Scarpari's and their baskets at the Sogn Valley Craft Fair on October 1st and 2nd, 2011.
