Most basket makers work independently so their earnings vary greatly. A company that does hire basket makers is the Longaberger Basket Company in Newark, Ohio. According to Helene Meyer, executive director of the National Basketry Organization, Inc., basket makers earn about $30,000 per year. People who teach basket making also earn approximately $30,000 annually. Basket prices can range from $45 for a small willow creation, to several thousand dollars (though this is rare) for an intricate, sculptural design.
