Cathie Harper is a basket-maker who creates baskets and non-traditional woven forms using natural and commercial materials. After moving North, she began using wild willow to create baskets. 25 years later, she still uses willow, but her work has gone through an evolution, and she now uses a variety of materials in her own designs. When Cathie starts, she may have a general concept but never knows what the final result will be. She lets the materials speak to her, guided by the freedom of creation. A true ‘basket case’, she has yet to find material that she can’t weave. Cathie operates her studio, Northern Willow Studio, in Yellowknife.
