Amy Robertson divides her time between Vancouver and Cortes Island, where she teaches from her home. She studies with Haida weavers every spring during an annual trip to Haida Gwaii, after her humble beginning of trial and error with found materials. Fifteen years later, Amy is incorporating a variety of techniques in her unique baskets, bottles, hats and cases, entwining function with form.
Amy has shown her work in Vancouver at the Jericho Arts Center and arranges private viewings in her home studio. Workshops are available for groups or individuals that want to learn the basics of material preparation, gathering techniques, and a variety of weaves and finishes.
