Katherine will be participating in the Edmonds Arts Festival this weekend June 18-20. One of our area’s largest and best street fairs, it showcases the work of nearly 240 juried artists as well as a wide range of musical entertainment, a wine bar and bistro, and kid’s activities. There are two areas for artists – the field and the plaza. Katherine will be in the plaza in the “traditional arts” area. You can find her spot on the festival map at space P5. She is hoping to have enough “elbow room” to be able to work on some weaving while there. Show and tell is one of the things that Katherine does best when she is at a show. (And hopefully keeps her from going crazy being away from the weaving room at home for three very long days!)
Katherine has been working hard the past couple of weeks to have a nice selection of work for the show. Expect to find these small colorful baskets as well as her usual display of willow garden baskets, shoppers, laundry baskets, wine baskets, and trays.
You can see a full list of the artists here. Hope to see you in Edmonds.
Katherine held her last willow basketmaking class of 2009 this past weekend December 5-6. She ended up with a great group of nine students plus friend and helper Alex Keggan. The projects were two small colorful baskets that were great for beginners or people wanting to practice basic skills. Originally we posted the class as an opportunity to make gifts, but after all the weaving we think most people were going to keep their baskets! I have posted a link to some photos from the second day of the class. Don’t forget that you can sign up for our mailing list to be informed of next year’s classes by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can just check our website for updates.
