February Meeting w/ Judy Zugish "Growing, Harvesting, & Weaving from Nature"

In this slide show and interactive discussion, Judy will take you on a tour of her celebrated basketmakers garden. There are so many plants you know, or grow, that yield wonderful soft and supple, strong and stable, sensational weaving materials!  With images and encouragement, you too can begin to gather the bounty, make the beautiful! The first step is seeing—welcome to my world!

Artist's Statement from Judy Zugish:

I’ve been making baskets a long time now. The process chose me originally, intuitively. From plants and sticks I could grow and gather that sparked my hands to making. The intimate relationship of garden to studio captivated me into experimentation. And then I chose to go deeply, inward, into the calling. Over time, I’ve come to realize my pieces are a sharing of stories-- the stories contained in the hours, years, weaving, living that grows a piece. And so, the basket has made me into a storyteller.


Now I begin to feel the elder steppes on my journey as magnetized outward, drawing on the calling as a narrative of chapters, to a sharing what I’ve come to know. Teaching to a collection of those who hear in their heartspace. And so, I build upon new form, a container of connection.


As it intuitively ended up, I crafted a life, and learned my skills from living the craft. Each beginning reveals 

reveals me to myself, and I am so thankful to the basket guiding my way to live in gratitude.
