JoAnn Kelly Catsos Workshop Saturday, Saturday, November 3rd
JoAnn Kelly Catsos
JoAnn Kelly Catsos is an award-winning black ash
splint basketmaker from Western Massachusetts.
JoAnn’s designs are influenced by traditional
Shaker and New England splint basketry, and
woven on molds made with help from her woodworker husband, Steve. She has been teaching
basketry full time for 25 years. Her teaching venues include art and craft schools, fiber/basketry
conferences, local guilds and private groups
across the country.
JoAnn’s baskets have won numerous awards,
including Viewer’s and People’s Choice at basketry conventions and fiber/basketry exhibitions.
Her baskets are in many private and public collections and are featured in a number of books and
magazines. In 1999 JoAnn was honored to have
an ornament on the official White House Christmas Tree. She also received her Certificate of
Excellence in Basketmaking: Level I from the
Handweavers Guild of America in 2003.
JoAnn and Steve process splint from black ash
tress harvested near their home in the southern
Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. They also
make the wooden molds, handles and rims
needed for each basket. JoAnn uses these materials in her signature baskets and in her classes.
