Spent a great three-day weekend mentoring Career Oportunity Grant receipient, Katie Haws on the fine art of antler basketmaking. She received her grant to study with me from the Region 2 Arts Council of Minnesota and the McKnight Foundation.
Katie learned how to drill into the antler correctly, glue and space the rib spokes, Southern Turn-Back technique, how to make a God’s Eye on the end of an antler tine, and much more. She started four baskets and completed all but a little on the last one!
Congratulations Katie, you did a great job and you were an excellent student. Very pleased to meet you and best wishes for all your future endevors.
