 About Instructor:

Pam made her first pine needle basket in June of 1994 and has since traveled to Thailand with the Royalwood tour and made 13 trips to Alaska to learn Pine Needle Basketry from Jeannie McFarland and Native Haida weaving with Delores Churchill. She harvests and prepares her own western red and Alaskan yellow cedar barks and Sitka spruce root. She has traveled to Scotland and Ireland to learn from local basket makers. She loves everything about weaving, from the gathering and preparation of materials to creating beautiful, mostly functional vessels. The connection of weaving across cultures continues to amaze and inspire her.  Sharing her knowledge and continuing to learn from other weavers brings her great joy.
