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.
