Nov 3-6, 2021 Karen Trembreull Workshops
“As a fiber artist focused in basketry, my medium is derived primarily from the environment. I am continuously inspired by the abundance of natural material that surrounds me and find myself driven to experiment with barks, roots, and fibers that seem to lend themselves to textile applications. Care and patience are necessary for the gathering and processing of the materials. I enjoy combining traditional basketry applications with other historical fibers arts and metalworking techniques such as: piecework, lace making, and fabrication. My basketry forms are a celebration of the harmony that is intertwined between these materials and traditional methods.” Karen Tembreull
