About Sunset Ridge Basketry

Mary Price

Owner - Creator - Teacher

In 1996 I wove my first basket, taught by my sister Shelli. I was instantly hooked with the therapeutic process of building a functional basket that I could be most proud of.

Together, we attended basket weaving conventions throughout the US, starting with Land of Lincoln Basket Weavers. We then moved on to designing and weaving hundreds of baskets to sell at Chicago area craft shows.

In 1997, being a stay-at-home Mom of 5, I decided to share my love of basket weaving with others by

offering classes out of my spacious basement.

Over the next 23 years, my basement classroom evolved into a complete basket weaving business named “Sunset Ridge Basketry". I continued teaching, creating new designs, writing detailed patterns, and offering more classes at various venues in the Chicago area. I found success in creating basket designs that offered the most efficient way of learning different techniques by simplifying the process and making basket weaving most enjoyable for my students.

 

~Living my dream~

I remember saying to my sister-

"One day when my kids are grown, my dream is to travel around the US to teach at basket weaving conventions."

In 2020, I taught on the "Basket Weaving Cruise".

In 2022 I taught at Georgia Basketry Association's yearly convention.

 

I am excited to say I am now living my dream! My husband and I sold our home, purchased an RV and took Sunset Ridge Basketry on the road. I consider myself the wanderlust weaver traveling about the US finding creative inspiration one state at a time.

Check out my teaching schedule to see where I am teaching next.
