How it all started...

The very first basket class I took was in 2014 with Mary May at the Tuckerton Seaport. We spent a few hours making up a historic replica of a berry basket made in New Jersey.  It is a tiny basket, but  it was the perfect start to my new obsession.  

Learning about the history and techniques instantly captured my attention. In a world full of mass produced products, it was a great accomplishment to have something so beautiful and functional, that I made myself.  Once it was finished I immediately wanted to make more, and ever since that day I searched for any basket classes I could find.

This little basket was the only one that I never stained.  It sits on my desk, holding my pens and pencils;  a little reminder of my start as a basket maker.
