2017 Winter Evening Basket Weaving - A Three Class Natural Basketry Series in NY's Hudson Valley

Come and get cozy with a cup of tea and some plant materials as you learn to make baskets in this three class evening series. This is for all you aspiring basket makers who can’t make it to a weekend workshop and are inspired to learn! We will cover three types of basketry: woven bark splints, coiled grasses and pine needles, and folded white pine pouches. You’ll leave with finished projects and a whole new perspective on the plants in your local landscape.

About Katie Grove

Going out into the forests and fields, harvesting materials from nature, and sitting down in the sun to weave a basket is  my idea of a perfect day! I am an artist and educator based in the Hudson Valley of New York and my passion is to create art    that is inspired by nature. I also teach nature-based art workshops on basketry and plant dyes, where I create an environment in which individuals can explore self-expression while learning how to identify, use, and appreciate locally available natural materials.

Fine Art Portfolio

In addition to teaching workshops on basketry and plant dyes I have a strong background in fine arts. Many of my paintings, drawings, and mixed media sculptures incorporate natural materials are all inspired by a deep love of nature.  I regularly show my art in venues throughout the Northeast and participate in artist residency programs. Here is a sample of what I do and for more please visit my fine art website here
