About the Instructor: Kay learned the art of basket weaving when she was a new Mom and in need of a Girls Night. It quickly turned into weekly events, and many, many baskets. Kay often sold baskets at a local gift shop to clear space for new creations. Thirty years later, Kay still makes time to spend in the studio every week, and gets excited for the opportunity to encourage new weavers to grow their skillset.
