South central Kentucky basket-making is a tradition that developed over generations of families that live along US Highway 31W, near Mammoth Cave. Members of this community find and harvest local white oak, shave it into splits, and weave baskets into a variety of shapes and sizes. Since 1993, the Kentucky Arts Council has supported masters and apprentices of community-based art forms with the Folk and Traditional Arts Apprenticeship program. Artists include traditional musicians, dancers, weavers, marble makers, chair makers, quilters, storytellers, and more.
