Weave Simple Reed Stars
In the Simple Star workshop, instructor Lisa Fullarton will steer participants through the steps to make an 8 pointed star (also called a Swedish Star, or Carolina snowflake) from either ash or reed, using pre-cut strips.
Instructor: Lisa Fullarton
Lisa began rediscovering artistic expression in 2011, when she opened Black Butterfly Studio with Black & White Mandalas and Zentangle inspired artwork. She sold work and taught classes locally until returning to school. Graduating in 2015 from the NB College of Craft and Design’s Aboriginal Visual Arts Program, she began to call on recently discovered family roots with a strong sense of spirituality and creativity blended with a passion for colour and love of traditional work. The result is one-of-a-kind pieces that are from her heart with a focus on a love of "visual texture" in tactile 3D work, such as carving and basketry.
She enjoys creating basketry products that may serve a practical purpose and represent fusion of function and fabulous design. Recently becoming a juried member of the New Brunswick Crafts Council has given her more opportunities to share what she has learned and experienced with others through teaching workshops, demonstrations, and selling her products.
