Sweetgrass Basket Making in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

Today I am very sad to learn of the passing of Henry Wigfall, Sr.

Mr. Wigfall was a central "character" in my 2008 Documentary, "Bin Yah". I have fond, long lasting memories of spending time with Mr. Wigfall while filming. He was a funny, thoughtful, and kind man who lived to make the lives of others better. Mr. Wigfall was a generational basket weaver who passed on the knowledge and importance of Gullah traditions, history and Sweetgrass basket making to so many.

Here are 3 video clips with Mr. Wigfall from the Documentary:
