About the Instructor: 

Dona is primarily a basket maker. She wants to help the fellow basket maker have fun while learning the techniques and methods she has found helpful over the years to help achieve work they could be proud of. She started teaching classes in 1992 throughout NJ at school campuses, local basketry guilds, and various galleries. Winning numerous awards for her work, she also has been recognized on local TV, in newspapers, magazines, and articles in several basketry newsletters. Not slowing down since moving to Tunbridge, VT in 1996, she has continued to teach classes across the country and holds classes at her quiet & secluded “Country Spirit Basket” studio with husband Warren. Dona does not focus on one style of basketry or one medium. She also enjoys the gifts of nature which she shares with students one being birch bark. Warren and Dona can both be seen harvesting birch bark on their property. Dona is accredited for teaching over 75 birch bark designs and more than 135 reed basket designs.
