I have been working to learn various basketry and weaving techniques. Focussing on European traditions that I am connected to, I have learned a variety of weaving, knotting, net making and basket making skills. I have incorporated these techniques while working with discarded marine rope, and invsive species harvested from vacant lots and other spaces in between or forgotten about. Since a lot of this material is collected, it is in ongoing dialogue with the land, and with my relationship to being here.
