Contact Cathryn–The Wicker Woman®

The Wicker Woman®--Cathryn Peters Welcome! I’m Cathryn Peters, the Minnesota-based business owner, blogger, mentor and weaving instructor here on and I hope you are enjoying your visit and finding value in the resources provided.

***As the owner of a long time, trusted wicker weaving, chair caning, and basketry resource site for nearly 20 years, I receive hundreds of daily emails asking for help and advice. And although I’d like to, I cannot answer individual “how-to” type questions or give individual advice or suggestions anymore, it’s just not possible. Please select PAID CONSULTATION on the drop-down menu on the contact form below and we’ll set up an appointment to discuss your issue.***

However, I do read every email and try to answer important ones within 48 hours. Feel free to leave me a topic suggestion and I’ll consider it for a future page, blog post, or video!

You can use the SEARCH BOX below to find the page or blog post that will answer your question. Or click on one of the picture topics below, which are some of the most commonly asked for topics.
