I have been weaving baskets for over 35 years and taught at Hill Institute for over 30. I am self taught and have woven different styles using many different techniques and materials. Being so open ended gave me the opportunity to discover what worked and what didn’t. This was valuable for teaching others the skills and knowledge of knowing what makes a good basket. My goal for my students is to understand the basics and develop their own creativity while enjoying what they do. There is nothing like seeing the pride of a student when they make their first basket.
I also teach chair seating which includes cane, rush, shaker tape and splint.
