Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture explores these designs and their history during the roundtable discussion "Coopered Vegetable and Fruit Baskets of Delmarva: The Marvil Packing Company" from 1:30-3 p.m. on Saturday, April 23. The event, in conjunction with the presentation "Woven Traditions: Maryland Basket-Making Communities and Culture, Past and Present," is held at the center's gallery, 190 Wayne St. Led by Dr. Kathleen Beauchesne, director of the Maryland-based Center for Research in Basketry, Inc., the discussion includes area residents who worked for Marvil, as well as the Eastern Shore canning industry.
