Basketry, mixed media, fiber
Laura Weber is a fiber artist focusing in the area of functional and sculptural basketry.
Laura first learned basket making like many before her, in the homes of others who taught the craft, whether out of the necessity of creating useful vessels, or a desire to pass on an ancient craft to future generations.
She further developed her techniques from accomplished basket artists who teach at workshops and conferences across the country.
With a desire to further promote an appreciation of this traditional craft, and to pass on the knowledge and skills to preserve it, Laura occasionally teaches basket weaving classes at The Pink Llama Gallery in Cedarburg, WI. A schedule of classes can be found on her website weberarts.com.
