Hear Joan talk about her 30 years of basketmaking and her love affair with bark. Joan lives in Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Canada.

Joan is well known for her basketry, both nationally and internationally, and the talk will focus on her experience of using bark as a material in basketmaking, how to harvest it and her influences.

We asked Joan about whether she had had to adapt her teaching methods during Covid and you may be interested to know that she teaches online zoom classes through the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific located in Victoria, BC.

All the courses are also listed on her website, http://joancarrigan.com, and some courses for beginners will be added in the autumn. People are welcome to join her email list for periodic newsletters from her.
