All sales and proceeds from Charm City Baskets are dedicated to supporting the research of the nonprofit Center for Research in Basketry, Inc., (CRB). The CRB’s mission is to study the effects of social policy on the basket making industry, the work and personal lives of basket makers and their baskets, and to add scholarship and research to the profession.
 


The Maryland State Arts Council has awarded CRB Maryland Traditions grants for the past four years. CRB has used the funding to examine basketry tied to Native Americans on the Eastern Shore, Baltimore City, the lives of watermen, immigrants of the Western mountains, and the manufacturing of baskets in North East, Md. Research projects highlight the basketry of Southern Maryland, including tobacco-drying baskets, Maryland basket making guilds, Native American tribes on the western shore and the use of baskets for fishing and crabbing. 


Basket owners are invited to bring in their own handmade baskets to Kathi Beauchesne by appointment to have their pieces studied and documented. In a race to save the disappearing craft of basket making, the CRB and its exhibits are part of a vital research effort by the Center for Research in Basketry to identify and record baskets throughout Maryland.

The Center holds basket making classes every month, and will host future meetings of the newly formed Chesapeake Basketry Guild.

Our CRB website, basketresearch.org is under revision and reorganization. Should you have any questions, please contact Kathi Beauchesne at kobeauchesne@basketresearch.org.
