Breathing Baskets

November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020

Pat Hickman

The focus of this workshop is to encourage students to explore openwork textile structures that include knotted netting and knotless netting. You will learn to reserve space for air and the importance of utilizing what is “not there” to build into studio projects, using a range of materials. Participants will discover how to become comfortable with netting techniques and understand how they can be used to express ideas in sculptural baskets. The goal of the workshop is discovery and to provide ways for students to push their own limits of imagination about what they have to say in their work. Open to all skill levels.


Pat Hickman lives in Haverstraw, New York and her studio is at the Garnerville Arts and Industrial Center. She is a professor emerita of Art at the University of Hawaii. Hickman has twice received NEA grants and is a fellow of the American Craft Council and serves on the National Basketry Organization Board.
