Kathy Parr is the basket instructor a Northampton Community College. She's been weaving baskets for 20 years. What started as a hobby turned into quite a little business for her over the years. In the beginning, she only did local craft shows and later participated in 15-18 juried shows a years.
After about 10 years of doing shows, she started teaching non-credit classes at the Bethlehem Campus of Northampton Community College in 2003. Although Kathy still enjoys weaving, she no longer does shows. In addition to Northampton, she also teaches small groups at various locations and every week at her home.
Kathy's goal at Northampton is to provide an enjoyable, relaxing experience and to have the student complete a woven basket in one class.
