Instructor Bio:
Polly Adams Sutton is a Seattle artist. Her educational background was art with an emphasis on painting and printmaking. Once settled in the Pacific Northwest she was introduced to basketry through the Seattle Weaver’s Guild. It has been her practicing art ever since. She harvests cedar bark each spring in logging areas throughout Washington. Her sculptural work is primarily twined, although she experiments with wire as a woven element in her asymmetrical shapes. Her work is exhibited in galleries nationwide, and she has been recipient of many awards in juried exhibits, and was awarded an artist project grant in 2012 through the City of Seattle, to experiment with invasive vines in her work. She also received an Artist Trusts GAP Grant which she used in conjunction with a Seattle Weavers Guild Grant for investigating the basketry of Sardinia. Her piece is also on the cover of the book “500 Baskets”.
