Joan Carrigan has a B.A. with a Major in Fine Art and a Minor in History from the University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario. 1983-1987.
On her interest in basketmaking, Joan says that "It was during travels in the South Pacific, when I was first drawn to the natural beauty and significance of Basketry. Upon returning in 1991, I attended my first Basketry Conference in Toronto. This was an exhilarating experience and my passion for basketry has continued to grow over the years."
