Art comes in a variety of forms; it's all about what you like. Saturday, close to twenty folks showed up at the Sagebrush Art Gallery to learn basket weaving from Laura Lee Zanger, an expert basket weaver specializing in Southeaster Native American Twills. Zanger explains.

Zanger says twill is more than what you learned in grade school.

Richard Webb drover over from Gillette to take part in the class. For him it's more than a hobby.

Zanger's purpose is to perpetuate the ancient twill techniques with the help of some special teachers.

Zanger is from Augusta, Georgia, and has written numerous basketry books.
