Judy Zugish

Judy is a basketry artist and educator whose work is experimental and sculpted from nature. She has explored plants in her fiber arts garden for over 30 years with keen curiosity.

In 1991, she dedicated her energies to starting a field school on her nursery property hosting national and international instructors to the Northwest, helping to create a fabulous new basketry excellence.

A gypsy by nature, she has roamed widely since 1998, leading journeys in basketmaking to Japan and England, Denmark, France and Germany. Recent explorations have focused on educational residencies and research in both New Zealand and Australia. When her magic slippers are home, she lives in Marysville, WA where she can be found deep in the foliage or working in her studio, surrounded by “ceiling bark.” Find details about her gardens, art, and school on her website.
