My name is Judith Ridings and I am a part time resident of East Bernstadt. I have been weaving baskets since 1996 and now teach classes also. Several of my friends and I teach monthly basket classes at the Richmond Area Arts Center in Richmond, KY, usually the last Saturday of the month. In addition, I teach seasonally at Paula's Quilting Pantry in East Bernstadt, owned by Paula Philpot. These are monthly classes. I also sell baskets at fairs and in shops. Richmond, KY is my home.
I have been weaving baskets for over 15 years now and continue to study with others to perfect my craft. There are many types of baskets and I have explored most forms. I have taught in different venues in Madison County and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. Our crafts must not be allowed to die with this generation.
