I teach basketry classes at a variety of art centers, state parks, and craft shops. The classes always include all materials, use of tools, and a fun time! All you have to bring is yourself, perhaps a friend or two, and something to snack on if you want. Unless otherwise stated, all classes are for those 16 years or older.

Class fun Make an heirloom and have fun doing it! Baskets are fun, and can be very easy to make. I have classes ranging from beginner through intermediate, and into advanced skill levels.

Tell me about your group or organization and I will prepare a class proposal for you. The proposal outlines what facilities are needed, what classes will be taught, and what financial arrangements will be made.

All class prices include all materials needed to make the basket, use of tools, instruction, and lots of fun!

Organizational hosts may receive a portion of class proceeds, and individual hosts may receive their basket for free with minimum enrollment.
