Sarah Sockbeson is one of the several young basketmakers who take Wabanaki traditions to a new level with their contemporary styles. A member of the Penobscot Indian Nation, Sarah apprenticed with basketmaker Jennifer Neptune and combines contemporary elements such as painting and bone carving into her work. Known for her vivid color combinations and beautiful landscape paintings, Sarah will demonstrate the various steps within her artistic process.
