June 1, 2016 – January 31, 2020, “Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America”, sponsored by the National Basketry Organization, curated by Jo Stealey and Kristin Schwain
September 28-October 1, 2017 Bamboo 101:The Basics. Class takes place in my 900 sq foot studio in Aloha Oregon. A visit to Bamboo Garden, a 20 acre bamboo farm in North Plains Oregon will kick off the workshop, where we will discuss bamboo growth, gathering/grove grooming, and varieties suited for working with. We will gather our materials we will spend the next three days working with. Day one we will meet at my place to carpool. Techniques taught over the next three days will include:Bamboo preparation, cutting, heat bending, drilling, traditional splitting, using traditional knives to prepare strips, pegging, creating holes in bamboo, and tying and binding techniques. This is a class in learning a wide variety of techniques, so students will take home small samples of a variety of techniques (rather than taking home a finished project/decorative object). The class is $350 and I will need two students for it to run. If I get at least 4 students I will drop the fee to $300 each. If you convince someone to sign up with you I can give you a $25 discount. The class is maxed out at 6 students, I like to keep things small so students have individual attention. Students will need to sign a liability waiver and are responsible for any injuries they may have in class (unlikely to happen beyond minor cuts). Tools and materials will be provided. Students will need to bring a sack lunch each day. Pre-registration is required and a $50.00 deposit will hold the spot. Cancellation must be made two weeks in advance to receive a refund on the deposit.
