2012 JoAnn Kelly Catsos Workshop

Thursday - Sunday, October 18, 19, 20, 21, 2012
9:00 am - 5:00 pm

I am so excited to be able to offer this workshop to make two beautiful baskets with JoAnn Kelly Catsos of Ashley Falls, MA. JoAnn has won numerous awards for her beautiful black ash baskets and in 1999 she was asked to weave an ornament for the White House Christmas Tree. She also was one of the first to receive the Certificate of Excellence Level I Basketmaking from the Handweavers Guild of America. JoAnn and her husband Steve produce all the weaving materials, hardwood rims and handles, and molds themselves. I hope you can join JoAnn and me for this exciting and fun class.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday
Lidded Knife Basket
8" long x 5" wide x 3" deep (without handle)

This beautiful basket is basked on a Shaker basket woven at Mount Lebanon community. The basket is woven of finely prepared black ash over a classic knife mold. The lid is woven in a modified quadrafoil twill pattern and completed with a sawtooth edge. Hardwood rims, handle and stretcher bar finish off this very challenging basket.


This is a three day advanced workshop
with quadrafoil twill experience mandatory.

Berkshire Backpack
2" deep x 2 3/4" wide x 4" tall
One of the newest additions to JoAnn’s line of beautiful baskets. Student will weave with finely prepared black ash splint over a multi-piece wooden puzzle mold to create this very small backpack. Insert the handle, lash the ash rims, install the skids to the bottom and buckle on the leather harness–just like a full-size pack. Due to the small size of this basket, patience and attention to detail is helpful.
