About the Instructor
Susan is a native of the coal mining village of Shady Spring, West Virginia. As a child, she watched her mother, Mae Alice Taylor, weave functional baskets. In 2002, after back surgery limited Mae’s mobility, it was time for mother to pass to daughter her precious knowledge of the art of basket weaving. Susan describes that time as “finally coming home”. The combination of fibers and artistry had opened a new avenue of self-discovery for her. Susan’s baskets are known for their quality, attention to detail, and visual excitement. A ‘natural’ in 3-dimensional arts, Susan also enjoys pottery, gourd projects, jewelry making, beadwork, wood turning, and felting wool.
