I took several basket weaving classes from a local woman in the 90’s. I have had opportunities to learn from many other basket weavers throughout the years. I honor the talents of those weavers who have shared their knowledge through patterns, articles, and stories. I am passionate about what I have learned and welcome the opportunity to share that with others. I am grateful to be considered a teacher of this art.
My baskets are made with reed a sustainable product in our world. Wooden bases, handles, accent colors, decorative pieces, maple strips and more complete the basket. The beauty of a basket is that no two are alike; each one is unique. Most of my baskets are traditional and functional, others are decorative. The uses are endless.
I find basket weaving to be very relaxing. My mind can be creative. I watch my hands weave and shape; I count rows; I become mesmerized. I am mindful of those weavers before me. And I smile at the thought of those who will be weaving after me.
