This is an introduction to weaving sculptural forms with basket materials. Beginning with reed, students will learn how to create three-dimensional forms with reed and traditional basketry techniques. Using a basic stake and strand process, we will learn how to begin and end a woven form, and how to manipulate the shape as the form develops. If time allows, other techniques may be introduced. We will also discuss the potential of including and/or using other materials, such as native reeds and grasses, string, wire, plastic, found and recycled stuff.


GINA TELCOCCI’s sculpture and installation work has been exhibited widely across the US, Mexico, and in South Korea. Public commissions include the University of New Mexico/Los Alamos, Walnut Creek Library, and the renovated Potrero Hill Library, in San Francisco, CA. Telcocci has created temporary and outdoor installations for public and private sites such as First Plaza, Albuquerque, NM; Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe, NM; Pojoaque Pueblo and San Jose Canyon, NM; and for the City of Oakland’s Cultural Arts Dept. Programs. She has received numerous grants and awards, from, among others, the Pollock Krasner Foundation, Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, and the City Of Oakland. Her work is represented by Ernesto Mayans Gallery in Santa Fe, and GearBox Gallery in Oakland. Currently Telcocci teaches Three-Dimensional Design at Santa Rosa Junior College.
