Tea n' Baskets

Nicole Penney

Nicole Penney, a Folklore student in the master's Public and Applied Folklore Co-operative Education Program, is currently doing her work placement with the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador (HFNL). During her placement she will be assisting the Intangible Cultural Heritage Development Office (ICH) with a project cataloguing baskets and basket makers in Newfoundland.

Janet Haron, Communications Co-ordinator (Arts), has written an article, "A tisket, a tasket ... who's got a mill basket?", detailing Nicole's work. Additional information and events related to this project can also be found on the ICH webpage and in the February issue of Intangible Cultural Heritage Update.

Anyone with photos or stories about Newfoundland baskets can contact Nicole by email at ichprograms@gmail.com.
