Peeta Tinay grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. From 1990 to 2000 at The Caning Shop in Berkeley California she was introduced to techniques involved in the restoration of wicker furniture. In 2000 a move to Washington state gave a fresh start motivating her to branch out. Starting in 2008 she veered hard into making large scale intricate baskets and hasn’t looked back since. Peeta teaches beginning, intermediate and advanced level basketry workshops both nationally and internationally.
