Explore Basketmaking Around The World
In recent years, I have been fortunate to help organize international basket tours to a number of countries, working with amazing basket weavers whom share their culture, history and love of baskets with myself and my basket weaving travel companions. Exciting, inspiring, idea growing and humbling, all describe these basket adventures! But more than that, weaving together has a way of making the differences between us disappear – to see the world through new eyes is a powerful thing!
Ireland - 2018, 2012 & 2011
Yes, I love Ireland and visiting and working with the basket makers there! Joe Hogan, Vincent McCarron, Ciaran Hogan, Eamon Tobin, Barry Noyce & Padraig Larkin, Cathy Hayden, Hanna Van Aelst, Kathleen McCormick and Alison Fitzgerald.
My first international trip started in Ireland, September 2011, returning in November 2012 and again in 2018.

denmark & France - 2016
Traveling to France to work with Danish weavers, Ane Lynsgaard and Eva Seidenfaden and visit the basket festival in Vallebregues was amazing! But to then follow them back to Denmark for more weaving and a day at the Pilefestival (Basket Festival) there, made this a very special basket adventure!
