Linda AguilarEric and Barbara Dobkin ArtistLinda Aguilar is a Chumash basketmaker who uses traditional techniques to create her unique horsehair and waxed thread baskets. Explaining this unusual blend, she notes, “There is a stigma to basketmakers: ‘Traditional’ or ‘Non-Traditional.’ I am both. I work with horsehair and waxed thread which are non-traditional materials. I approach the weaving with tradition. I respect the many generations of ancestral basket makers.”
