Marilyn Hansen

Medium: Reed Weaving



Before coming to New Mexico in 1995, Marilyn lived in Wisconsin, where she taught for ten years at an independent day school and owned and managed two retail stores before retiring.  Several years ago, she discovered a passion for reed weaving.  


Sculptural weavings have become her favorite pieces, both vessels, and wall hangings. She will often incorporate exciting pieces of wood in her work.  She has studied under master basket weaver Pat Jeffers, natural fiber artist Donna Sakamoto Crispin, paper artist Leandra Spangler, basketry artist Lissa Hunter, pine needle artist Clay Burnett, and jewelry artist and weaver Mary Hettsmansperger.
