WAM December 10-11 Dale Jarvis
Did you ever collect berries in a basket? Take your lunch to work in a basket? Carry your trout home in a basket?
Now the really important questions - do you still have that basket, and, did you make that basket?
Dale Jarvis is an Intangible Cultural Heritage development officer with the Heritage Foundation and has a keen interest in the traditions and crafts of the province that are in danger of disappearing.
I invited Dale into the studio this week and asked him why he’s looking for baskets and basket-makers.
