All rib-style basketry techniques are related. Learn or add to your basic skills in willow construction, as you make four styles of beautiful and useful baskets: Gypsy Melon, Sieve, Willow Ridge Herb Basket and Day Tote. Students can expect to weave four baskets along with sample work for future reference.
Jo Campbell-Amsler has been weaving baskets with willow since 1981. Her work is featured in magazines, books, and seen in exhibits across the U. S., most recently “Touchstone: A Half-Century of Craft” in the Frank Lloyd Wright Falling Water’s Speyer Gallery. Teaching nationally, Jo has co-organized basketry events: The Willow Gathering, Willow Weekend and The Willow Connection. She organizes and hosts basketry tours to Ireland, Scotland, Spain, France, Denmark, Wales, England, Italy and Peru, visiting with fellow basketmakers and learning new skills. 2024 will find her traveling to Shetland and the Orkney Islands. http://www.willowridgebaskets.com
