Beaux Arbres Basketry
For 25 years I have been interested in Basketry - materials, techniques, and utility. Local plants in many forms - grasses, bark, roots, vines and leaves - have always provided the materials for making baskets. I am continuing this tradition in my basket designs and chosen materials.
Beaux Arbres Basketry studio is located at a c1845 Irish homestead in Bristol, Quebec in the Ottawa Valley. Basketry is a connection with history and daily routines of homestead living that influences my work.
I have taken workshops and courses from internationally known basket makers including Ankaret Dean and the late Edith Clayton at various conferences and private sessions to develop my skills. I teach workshops through Get Art, a collective of artists in Western Quebec that brings art into the community, and privately at Beaux Arbres.
Beaux Arbres baskets are available at local farmers’ markets, craft sales, and through direct contact with me.
