Kristen Conboy - Basketry for Adults

It is the tactile nature of basketry that inspires Kristen to continue learning and teaching basketry - and the practical side of her loves to create functional art that can be used and admired. Basket weaving is about creating something with your hands; there is a sense of satisfaction gained from looking at the finished product and saying, "I made that."

Kristen has over 20 years of experience working with fibre, whether it be knitting, weaving or basketry. Kristen's professional career is outside of the studio; to the classroom she brings with her years of experience teaching adults, a passion for learning and a love of creating.
