Instructor Info: Retired after 42 years as a custom-design jeweler and goldsmith, Mark is now enjoying the freedom of being an artist unconstrained by choice of medium. He studied art, with an emphasis in metalsmithing, at Michigan State University. He has been making baskets since the early 80s, exploring many different materials and techniques. His basketry work has been exhibited internationally, and his jewelry and metal work have been found in galleries and stores throughout the U.S. He also enjoys printmaking, woodcarving, papermaking, making books, sculpture, drawing, photography, painting and designing tattoos. Some of his photos, writing and original word puzzles can be found locally in Freshwater Reporter, a free community newspaper he and his wife, Pat Stinson, co-edit. Mark’s latest twined basket designs explore spiral shell forms, using hand-dyed reed and driftwood. He is a member of the Association of Michigan Basketmakers. His work is exhibited regularly at regional art centers and galleries.
