2023 Basketry Updates

Hello everyone! 2023 is going to be a big year for me. I’ll be focusing on writing, working on my own art, and developing future classes. Because of the time this will take I have made the difficult decision not to teach any weekend, single day, or private classes. This is a big leap for me and comes with both fear and excitement! Since I can’t imagine my life without at least some teaching I will still be offering one session of my Wild Basketry Series from April – December and the info for that is below.

I’ve received so much support in this decision from past and current students and my heart is so full with gratitude. I’ll still be active on social media and sharing my progress with all the projects I’ll be working on.

Please know you can still reach out to me at katiegroveart@gmail.com about wanting to take classes and I can put you on lists for next year or refer you to some of my students and friends who are teaching basketry as well.

Thank you so much again, Katie

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.
