About the Instructor

A native of Floyd County, Kathy Dulaney has been weaving baskets and teaching classes for 25 years. Weaving mostly older Appalachian style baskets, she strives to keep the tradition alive by teaching younger folks the art. If you make a basket in one of her classes you can be sure that it will be something you can use. Each basket was designed for a specific purpose and Kathy stresses the usefulness of each in her classes.
