Artist Talk & Workshop with Kathy Rousso

We are thrilled to be hosting Ketchikan Weaver Kathy Rousso! We’ll have a public event on Thursday Jan 17 at 6:30 PM and an intensive workshop Friday through Sunday.

Kathryn Rousso weaves, writes about, and photographs baskets and bags. Her first baskets were woven under the guidance of Delores Churchill, Holly Churchill and many others at the Totem Heritage Center. Rousso was exposed to Mayan textiles as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala during the late nineteen-eighties and later discovered new weaving techniques and materials in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Indonesia, and New Zealand. Her contemporary baskets incorporate elements of twined, looped, and braided maguey fibers, cedar bark and spruce root, plus a few surprises!

Kathy’s visit is made possible with support from the Petersburg Library Art Education Endowment.

Rainforest Writers Workshops

Let's write together in this creative writing workshop facilitated by Orin Pierson!

Session B+ Manuscript  - 10 weeks - $140 - 2:30pm - 5:45 pm - Register here

This expanded session includes an additional manuscript review component. Participants in this workshop write together to prompts in the usual AWA method, and the closing hour of each day is dedicated to a manuscript review. This is a valuable opportunity for writers to develop drafts into next stages. Participants strengthen their revision craft through review and discussion of their peers' work. Join us for this fun and productive learning experience.

Orin Pierson is trained and certified to facilitate writing workshops using the Amherst Writers and Artists Workshop Method. AWA workshops follow a proven method with a simple philosophy: every person who writes is a writer, and every writer deserves a safe environment in which to experiment, learn, and develop craft. The AWA Method creates a safe and supportive space where writers of all ability levels come together to play on the page. Details about the AWA and a schedule of upcoming workshops is available at www.rainforestwriters.org
