The instructor was amazing—informative, encouraging, and supportive. I feel ready to move on to the next level and will be pursuing classes with this instructor in the future!
William Krier is a wonderful and delightful teacher. I especially liked the camaraderie that developed with other students and the beautiful basket I made under William's expert guidance.
Born and raised among the Amish community in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, William Krier developed an interest in the art of basket weaving and has been practicing this art since the 1980's. He enjoys the challenge that wicker basketry brings. Using a variety of agents from commercial dyes to nut hull stain to teas, William dyes and stains all of his own reed.
Weaving traditional baskets using bright colors is William's way of contemporizing the art of basket making.
