Tropical Palm-Part Art Classes

Palm Part Basketry

Considered by some the oldest known form of “Utilitarian Art,” the ancient craft of basketry forms the basis for my original “Plant Part Art.” Utilizing native plant materials, including palm materials, and implementing techniques such as weaving, sewing, twining, plaiting, and coiling, I create my own Tropical Art. These are some of the fundamental techniques I use, and certainly enjoy passing along to those interested in this timeless craft. Join me for your own session and explore what nature has to offer you.

From the Skin of a Plant

“Twining, plaiting, herringbone and satin
For joining together
Or weaving a pattern

This mimic of nature runs very deep
These forms that we search for
In all that we seek

So we’ll make a vessel to hold our hearts
From the skin of a plant
Both golden and dark

And through this creation try to define
Our connection to mother
To all that’s divine”
