Woven Branches  - Herbal Medicine, Basketry, Wild Food and Living with Nature
In Adventure .... 
BOSS: Boulder,Utah
I have spent the last three years learning, living and working in southern, Utah at the Boulder Outdoor Survival School.

I have learned so much from the desert and the canyons. Though I am still getting acquainted with the flora and fauna of this new place to me, I am grateful for all the healing energy the rocks and waters of this place hold.

 BASKETRY with Erin
Specializing in teaching both Traditional Wicker style basketry and hybrid basketry styles combining many traditions, you can find a class in most corners of the country.

The most popular classes are in a 3-day format where students learn all the basic foundations of weaving a base, building the sides with decorative weaves and finishing with a strong functional border.

Short format classes are available including: ribbed baskets, various soft fiber/cordage baskets, cattail weaving, black ash basketry, and birch bark containers.

 Wild Food Adventures!

*Now that I am living mostly on the west coast and the south west, I am not making out to gather and collect as often as I would like. I miss the midwest and the seasonal harvests that are so grounding to me. But, I am happy to share my knowledge and information about Wild Foods.
