# of Years of Experience: Ten Years.


Class Location: I teach primarily in my home community in Beverly Hills, Florida and surrounding area.  I am willing to travel if circumstances are right.


Bio: I studied Nantucket Lightship Basket weaving in 2006 with Nantucket Guild-trained artisan Bob Moore.  I’m a traditionalist in the Jose Reyes discipline, and I teach – both beginning and advanced courses - to make sure this valuable heritage is passed on.  I’m an award winning member of the Muddy Creek Artists Guild (MD), and have taught annually at the prestigious John C. Campbell School of Folk Art in North Carolina.  Please visit my website:  www.schipperhaven.org/baskets
