During the past year, the East Tennessee Historical Society has worked to document the traditional basket makers of our region. Materials and construction details have been recorded. For those baskets where the makerís identity is known, family stories and photographs have also been collected. "Woven of Wood" highlights selected examples from this survey.

The exhibition is sponsored in honor of Natalie L. Haslam with additional support from the Arts & Heritage Fund. Community partners include the Dogwood Arts Festival and the Foothills Craft Guild. The exhibition will be on display at the Museum of East Tennessee History through June 1, 2014.
