This two-day workshop will explore and experiment with a variety of basket making techniques and structures. We will create a few free-form vessels while experiencing unusual and fun materials and stretching the definition of basketry.


EMILY DVORIN is a sculptural basket maker known for her innovative “transordinary” vessels made with everyday, re-contextualized materials. She grew up in New Jersey and moved to California in the 1970’s. She is a retired third grade teacher, macramé artist; retail craft store owner and singer. She is a wife, mom, Grammy and full-time artist. She now has a studio in Sausalito, CA. She continues to teach classes in basketry for both adults and children, and she speaks, consults and exhibits all around the country.
