Teaching Schedule


Joanna has been privileged to instruct basket weaving classes for over 20 years. She currently teaches for four community education programs in schools located in east central Minnesota. It’s always a joy to watch students of all ages creating baskets that they are so very proud of ~ an accomplishment many thought they never could attain!
