St.Paul, MN

Beth Homa is a full-time basket weaver. After studying painting in college and working as a caseworker for the homeless, she interned at North House Folk School where she learned many traditional crafts including boat building, but mostly different styles of basketry. This sparked her obsession with birch bark, which is now her main medium. She sustainably harvests and processes her own materials by hand. Beth is always trying to figure out what she can make out of birch bark next and how to share this durable and beautiful material with people.
