NYS Sheep & Wool Festival - Workshop Registration


Mary Ann Williams

I made my first basket late one afternoon after a challenging day as an elementary teacher…it was a disaster!  However I found this craft engaging and my twenty-five year relationship with basketmaking began.  I have increased my skills and love for baskets by seeking out and taking workshops whenever and wherever I can.  I am particularly grateful to Wendy Jensen, Joann Kelly Catsos, and Lita Leichter for getting me started as a basketmaker and for sharing their expertise with me over the years.  I am a member of the Northeast Basketmakers Guild and the National Basketmakers Organization as well as a board member of the Westchester Area Basketmakers Guild.  I enjoy teaching basketmaking workshops privately, at libraries, for an after school program at an elementary school in addition to other local venues.
