9:30 - 5:00
Address: 

Horticulture Centre of the Pacific 505 Quayle Road


with Joan Carrigan

This is a variation of a Rib basket. Rather than having a single handle this variation has 2 built in side handles. We will be using willow for the hoop and a combination of dyed reed and seagrass for the weaving. This class is suitable for experienced basket weavers and those new to weaving. Joan is an excellent teacher and artist and taking her classes can become addictive.

HCP Members $120
Non Members $140

Instructor Bio: Joan Carrigan
Joan Carrigan is a full time basketmaker and basketry teacher living on Salt Spring Island, BC. Over the past 25 years, her passion for baskets has led her to study, travel and explore many different techniques and materials within the medium. Joan studied Fine Art and Art History at the University of Guelph and her love of history has fuelled her research in traditional techniques. Her background in fine art has fuelled her enthusiasm for the sculptural and creative potentials that the medium offers. Her inspiration comes from the plant materials she respectfully harvests from nature. Joan’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Joan teaches extensively both close to home and in Europe and finds this to be a very rewarding aspect of her career.
