Hello everyone! Along with everyone else I have been working to adjust to the current reality of a world with Covid 19. Right now I do not have any in person classes on the calendar for fall 2020 or winter 2021. I am considering doing some zoom classes, webinars, videos and selling natural basket kits along with directions so keep an eye out for all of those things (the mailing list or following me on social media is the best way to stay updated). You can also get on the mailing list for my 2021 Wild Basketry 9 Month Series which I am planning to hold, with some adjustments. Thanks everyone for your flexibility and I look forward to making a basket together soon. : )

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. When I’m not teaching I am either working on my fine art, participating in gallery shows and residencies, or traveling.

Fine Art Basketry and Nature Inspired Art

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

I also have several ongoing series of work that is very directly inspired by the plants and materials of basketry. In this work I take the traditional and non-traditional basketry materials and simply explore, follow my instincts, and develop pieces that inspire viewers to appreciate the natural world around them.
