About April Stone: Stone is a self-taught ash basket weaver. In 1998, she spent a full year watching a basket get used daily, unaware of the intimate relationship that was being formed. After one year of this basket in use, the lashing around its rim broke. The strength of this natural material moved her to the point of wanting to know all she could about the qualities and characteristics of the wood, what it could do, and how to weave with it.
Stone has shared her knowledge and teachings with tribes, folks schools, colleges, youth groups, school programs, skill shares, and more, both nationally and internationally.
