May 2024 General Meeting

Emily Dvorin
Sculptural Basketry
Thursday, May 9   7 PM

Via Zoom for Members

Emily Dvorin

Through sculptural basketry, Emily Dvorin explores and illustrates the concept that even unexpected objects that we take for granted can become works of art. Known for her innovative vessels, Emily will show and talk about her use of repurposed, re-contextualized, up-cycled materials. She will share her dedication to changing the definition of basketry by exploring contemporary interpretations of a traditional craft using non-traditional ingredients. 

Emily Dvorin is a self-taught, award-winning fiber artist known for her innovative vessels. She owned a fine craft store for 35 years and retired to live her life’s dream of being a full-time artist. She now has a studio in Sausalito, CA. She teaches classes for both adults and children and she speaks, consults, does commissions and exhibits all around the country.
