Horticultural Society hosts Salt Spring basket maker

Joan Carrigan guest speaker at March 21 meeting

The Comox Valley Horticultural Society welcomes Joan Carrigan as guest speaker to the March 21 meeting.  The doors to the Florence Filberg Centre will be open at 6:45 and the meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.

Carrigan is a basket maker with a focus on exploring ways of weaving with plant materials. Her presentation will cover how cultures throughout the world for millennia have used available vegetation such as barks, vines, roots, grasses, etc. to make baskets. She will highlight how she sustainably harvests and prepares local plant materials on Salt Spring Island to make both functional and sculptural baskets.

For the past 25 years, Carrigan has been making, studying and teaching basketry.

Her passion for baskets has led her to explore many different techniques and materials both traditional and sculptural. Her inspiration comes from the plant materials she respectfully harvests from nature. Joan’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.  For more information visit joancarrigan.com

The CV Horticultural Society is celebrating this new season with “Spring a Friend.”  All welcome to attend at no cost.
