Teaching Schedule


Joanna has been privileged to instruct basket weaving classes for over 20 years, but now her daughter & co-worker, Danielle, is taking over. 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! If you would like to try your hand at the age-old art of basketry, join us for one or all of the upcoming weaving classes.
