Judy Zugish presents: Intertwined, plants that become baskets


Judy has been immersed in her garden of fibers for over 30 years. Her twin passions are integrated as a professional nursery owner (Bouquet Banque ) and basketmaker. Cultivation and nurturing, harvest and prep, weaving from nature’s provisions, each year has been a learning journey that builds skills and knowledge from traditions, but also explores uncharted territory.


Along the way, Judy began teaching, then co-founded the field school Fishsticks Basketry, inviting guest teachers to bring their special knowledge of materials and techniques to the Northwest. Judy loves to travel, taking the basketry path to Japan and England, Germany and Denmark, Ireland and France, Laos and Thailand, bringing home with her the experience of many cultures. She enjoys the disciplines within the craft, but also the joy and play in new discovery. This is Judy’s special connection with students as she takes barks and roots, vines and sticks in a carryall trunk, teaching across the US and abroad. Her artworks are exhibited widely and you are welcome to visit her garden in person.
