Testimonials:

"I'm so happy to have been in Alexa's first basket class, out in a big beautiful field. During a hectic summer, it was so wonderful to sit in a group of sweet women and slowly weave a basket purse under the sun while we quietly chatted the day away. Alexa created such a space of peace and beauty and her teaching style was relaxed and so informative. Her knowledge of basketry is extensive and her patience, unwavering. Everyone was overjoyed with their baskets. I'm lucky enough to own one of her handmade pack baskets but hope to take that class with her one day too.' - Jennifer Kahn

"I loved the Adirondack Pack class I took with Alexa. She makes herself available throughout the class with all students if one on one support is needed to make sure the end product is one everyone feels satisfied with. She also explains basketry by explaining the purpose for each step rather than just a list of things to complete, which allows for the possibility of taking that knowledge into other formats of baskets down the line beyond what was done in the class." - Nowlenn Madeleine Agnes Renault

"Thank you again for a most wonderful experience creating a useful and fabulous piece of artful gear! Hauling breakfast items from the yurt kitchen back to the house this morning and it is so nice to put them in the basket! Thanks again for being a wonderful example of patience and calm as a teacher. I look forward to the coming school year where I hope to implement the same peace and calm in my classroom as you spread for us all day. I realized how important it is when learning something totally new.  Thank you!" - Heidi Pancake

"I attended Alexa's Adirondack pack basket class at the Zen barn/Restaurant in Waterbury! Alexa is an amazing person, teacher and artist! I am so happy she shared her passion for basketry with me! The all day class was informative and fun. Alexa provides a perfect amount of group and individual instruction! It was such a pleasure and after finishing my basket at class I have learned skills so I could make a basket on my own at home! I am excited to learn another basket with Alexa! Such a rewarding experience!" -Sonya Martin
