Brookfield Library Presents Gullah Sweetgrass Baskets via Zoom on June 15

Gullah Sweetgrass Baskets with Corey Alston on Wednesday, June 15 from 6 - 7 pm via Zoom 

This webinar, presented by Corey Alston, will tell us about Sweetgrass Basket Weaving: why the Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor is so unique, how he is keeping the art form alive, patterns and ancestral techniques.

Corey was featured on Good Morning America and was recently commissioned to make a basket which will be in the Smithsonian American Art Museum!

Sweetgrass Basket Weaving has been a major part of the Gullah Geechee Culture, dating back to days of Enslavement. This coastal art form has been recognized as South Carolina State Handcraft, and has been known to be kept alive the longest along Sweetgrass Basket Makers HWY of South Carolina. This skill is one of the rare arts of our country that is founded nowhere else in America. Gullah Sweetgrass Baskets are a national treasure.
