Bonnie Gale has been a professional willow basket maker for nearly two decades. A Kennedy Scholar with degrees from the University of Manchester and the Massachusetts institute of Technology, she has trained with professional European willow basket makers.

In addition to weaving baskets, Gale teaches traditional willow basketry across the United States at major conventions and guilds. She writes extensively on traditional willow basketry and willow growing, and her articles have appeared in Early American Life magazine, Basket Bits, Basketry Express, and assorted basketry publications.
