Textile artist

82 River Street, Sutton

Michelle has been weaving contemporary baskets for over 25 years and teaching for the past 15 years, throughout southern Ontario. Most baskets she weaves are designed to be visually appealing while still being functional and practical, as well she enjoys creating a selection of decorative woven pieces to celebrate the various seasons. Michelle’s preference is to design baskets for teaching that incorporate many different weaving techniques, materials and concepts that can then be applied to creating a variety of baskets. Reed is her personal material of choice for teaching, incorporating hand dyed reed whenever possible. Michelle is happiest when students learn something new that will not only enhance their own work but will also encourage them to develop a true appreciation of the ancient artistry of basketry!
