Jan Hoadley, Basketry

More than 20 years ago, Jan Hoadley was introduced to a local, master basket weaver who was offering classes. She immediately found this activity to be quite enjoyable and a great way to relax from a busy teaching schedule.

It soon became a passion!

Retirement has given Jan a greater opportunity to devote more time and energy to developing her basket weaving skills, through additional classes and creative exploration.

Her baskets are made from quality reed and incorporate a wide array of techniques. Some are simply decorative, most are functional, and are handcrafted in a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes. She particularly enjoys using colored reed to add interest and impact.

Jan says it’s exciting create different designs and patterns, and to watch
the shape of the basket unfold. Each basket has its own unique personality.
Her goal is to present a quality, durable product that will be a welcome addition to any home and bring pleasure and enjoyment for many years to come.

Jan lives in Epsom and has been a member Valley Artisans member since 2011.

Jan welcomes requests for special orders.
