2024 May/June Basketmaker's Month Webinar

Some of the most common questions I get asked as a basketry teacher revolve around which basketry plants are season during different times of year. What are the best ways to identify these plants? How are they harvested, processed, and stored? This webinar series answers these questions and more. This May/June the focus is on BARK. I’ll be covering all you need to now to get started peeling bark in your own backyards. 

2024 Basketry Updates

Hello everyone! 2024 is going to be a big year for me. I’ll be focusing on a big writing project (more TBA soon!) and developing future classes. To facilitate this I have made the difficult decision to reduce my teaching load. 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 some one and two day classes, which I’ll announce on a rolling basis. This includes my upcoming Basketmaker’s Month Webinar on harvesting bark Thursday May 16th

I’ve received so much support for 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 my projects so please check in with me on instagram @Katiegrovebasketry. 

Please know that you can still reach out to me about classes and I can put you on lists for next year or refer you to other teachers.

In gratitude, Katie


In addition to teaching basketry workshops I am a practicing artist. Through intricate woven sculptures, watercolor paintings, and mixed media work I explore varied themes including material transformation, lineage, cycles of nature, and the voices of plants. See portfolio page for more.

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 foster 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.
