June Art Demo​​nstration

The Fremont Art Association (FAA) is delighted to have Jennifer Wool as the guest artist at its virtual General Meeting and Art Demo on Wednesday, June 7, 2023, at 1:00 pm. 


Wool is a prolific basket artist and teacher whose body of work embodies her abundant sense of joy and fun. In her demo "Intertwined Fibers and Clay,” Wool will demonstrate basket weaving on a pottery vessel and show the process of cordage and how it can be used in basketmaking.


Exposed to the world of arts and crafts by her mother, Wool’s creativity was sparked early in life. She would embark upon her meandering journey of exploration beginning with numerous college courses in pottery, workshops in basketry, followed by experimentations incorporating weaving into her pottery and combining her alluring basketry and woodburning designs on hard shell gourds.


Wool’s lifelong artistic practice and teaching of arts and fine crafts has flourished alongside her commitment to parenting and tending to her family’s small farm up on Mount Hamilton Road where they raise sheep, chickens, dairy cows, a large vegetable garden and fruit orchard. Wool draws inspiration from this idyllic environment harnessing the beauty and creative possibilities that natural materials afford her. These include wool from the sheep; gourds grown in the garden; pine needles, reeds, grasses, leaves from bulbs and daylilies; and other natural materials for making cordage and weaving. She particularly enjoys working with the inner bark of downed western red cedar trees and incorporating date palm inflorescence and philodendron sheaths in adding interesting textural qualities to her work. Wool’s passion for discovering and integrating newfound materials to create her exquisite 3-D art is limitless.  

Wool participates in various exhibitions in the Bay Area. She has been a member of the East Valley Artists for 40 years where she currently serves as its Vice President. You may view Wool’s lovely functional and decorative baskets and accessories at:

Join us for a captivating demo by Jennifer Wool as she shares her passion for basketry. The meeting (free to attend) will be held via Zoom. Participants must register in advance and will receive the Zoom link via email.
