I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be together with a community of learners at IslandWood. For seventeen years the dedicated people at IslandWood have welcomed and supported my teaching/artist work, helping me learn to share my passion for making art with plant fibers. Anytime in life is the right time to learn new skills, or hone the skills we already have so that we can use them our lives and keep the knowledge living. I didn’t have much time to take pictures, and I’m sorry I didn’t get any of Ellen Miyasato in action, who assisted the first half of the day, or Judy Russell, the student who had to leave early because of the accumulating snow. But here are a few images of our fun day of Weaving From the Wild.

Thank you for coming, and I hope you’ll be able to stop by the Heronswood Garden Gallery during their open hours this March. I’ll be exhibiting my work along with cedar weaving artists Melissa Streun, Darlene Peters, Sue Skelly, and Polly Adams Sutton.
