Cleaning Techniques for Basketry [Tutorial]


In this video tutorial, Nancy Odegaard, Head of Preservation at the Arizona State Museum, demonstrates some of the techniques she uses for cleaning basketry surfaces. Using a miniature basket, she illustrates how to clean baskets with a fan brush and a vacuum cleaner.
