Jean Connor (Edmonton, AB) is a basket weaver who studied ceramics, basketry, weaving and tapestry at the Alberta College of Art + Design in Calgary.
While hand building clay pots, she became interested in the coil building method. She combined this technique with her interest in fibre art to produce her “Baskets of Yarn”. Jean’s award winning and superbly crafted primitive baskets are in private collections across Canada, the US and in India.
