Felicia “Fish” Trujillo to Teach Basket Weaving Class at UNIFY FEST 2016 in Santa Fe!

My history with basketry began in 2000 after learning to make willow chairs in Maine with Michael Emmons at a furniture making school in Rockland.  I wanted to make a laundry basket out of willows because the plastic ones from the store never lasted and there would be the huge hunk of plastic to throw away.  I was lucky to find two basketmakers to teach me how to weave two different styles of baskets.  Lorenzo Armijo, a hispanic man from Cochiti (madeira) and Bob Allalunis, from Taos via Pennsylvania (moises).  I finally made an acceptable laundry basket using old bike rims and find them to make very sturdy, lasting and fun baskets.
