Open Holiday Weekends @ Tina’s Baskets – Nationally Award Winning Weaver Tina Puckett Invites You to Her Studio

The holiday spirit is alive and well in Studio #305 at Tina’s Baskets and Woven Arts owned by Tina Puckett, a national award-winning master artist known for her woven art and dimensional weaving. This is your chance to shop in a highly acclaimed artist’s studio with the added bonus of meeting the artist, watching her weave, and learning what inspires her sought-after woven pieces, which are available at a variety of affordable price points.

Finding the perfect present can be a tricky business – and yet a local artist Tina Puckett weaves baskets, bowls, and wall hangings, which are pieces of art. Tina’s Baskets is sure to satisfy even the most discerning on your list. Visiting her rustic art studio is an adventure in itself, especially if you are on the hunt for something special that is sustainable, ready to be used time and time again, and loved for years to come.

Many things make Tina’s woven art unusual. Each piece is inspired by Tina’s imagination and woven with hand-dyed reeds into beautiful dynamic shapes with a mélange of colors that will not be found anywhere else. What enhances the character of each piece is the addition of the Bittersweet Vine foraged by Tina in the woods near her home in northwest Connecticut. The natural beauty of bittersweet is at the heart of the inspiration of every piece that is woven here and often dictates the form a basket or sculpture will take.

Tina’s Basket’s atmospheric studio is located at Whiting Mills at 100 Whiting Street in Winsted, Connecticut. Tina’s Baskets will be open and welcoming the public on Friday, November 25, Saturday, November 26, and Sunday, November 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

On the following weekend, Tina’s Baskets will be participating in the highly anticipated Whiting Mills Open House on Saturday, December 3, and Sunday, December 4 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition to Tina’s Baskets, visitors will also have the opportunity to visit other studios that are not normally open.

The holiday merriment at Tina’s Baskets continues for two more weekends on Saturday, December 10 & 17, and Sunday, December 11 & 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For additional information please email or visit the website.
