Basket Maker & Basketry Teacher

Salt Spring Island, British Columbia Canada

Baskets are containers in which the threads of human history and the natural world intertwine and hold endless possibilities of creative expression.
I was really looking forward to attending your workshop this weekend. What surprised me most was just how much I was delighted by the process, the provocation, and the possibilities.

I am grateful for your ability to mentor and instruct, Joan. I’m sure that with as much practice as you have, you are well aware of what works and what doesn’t… but I was grateful for your clear instructions. You carefully offered instructions orally, visually, and in print. Your pacing was intentional and you allowed space for observation, reflection, practice, and integration. It was just a seamless, splendid, delightful day for me.
