North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minnesota is just about the best folk school in the country! And I’m very proud to have been included on the teaching staff since 1999.
One of the classes that North House is famous for (besides my antler basketry, chair caning, and natural rush seat weaving classes), is the one on weaving Black Ash Basketry.
Here’s a write up on Minnesota Public Radio News by Marc Sanchez about black ash basketmaker and North House intern Ian Andres. Be sure to not only read the article, but listen to the audio piece and watch the photo slideshow. The combination is wonderful!
Good job North House Folk School and MPR for giving such fine coverage, we love ya both!
