Clayton Russell

I first learned to make the Appalachian Egg Basket in the late 1970’s. I have made at least one and sometimes as many as two dozen every year since. Basketing has been a way for me to explore and learn about the out of doors while gathering materials needed for the construction of baskets.

My interest in and appreciation of the outdoors has also fueled my professional interests as a naturalist educator and most recently as an Associate Professor of Environmental Education and Outdoor Education at Northland College in Ashland, WI.
