Instructor: JoAnne Russo
Class Description: This class will be fun and creative. With a few basketry techniques and some sewing you can make this daisy pin and wear it home. Each student will weave a black ash circle, sew on beads, do some coiling, and add a pinback. Ready to wear! There will be many color combinations to make a “daisy” or create your own design. JoAnne will share ideas for other designs based on the basic woven circle. The finished pin is about 2” x 4”. Bring some favorite beads if you wish. No basketry skills required.
Instructor Bio: JoAnne Russo has been making baskets since the early 1980s. She has refined her technique over the years and now makes one-of-a-kind sculptural pieces. Her “daisy pins” have been popular with her customers who already own a basket or two as well as those who love her work from afar. JoAnne has won numerous awards for her baskets. They are in collections and museums around the world. Recently, two pieces were selected to be among the artwork at the US Embassy in Kigali, Rwanda.
