Garmel Rich

Garmel_Rich
Garmel Rich is a Labrador grass basket maker who has elevated the traditional Inuit craft of sewing grass baskets to the level of artistry that is unmatched. Garmel was born in Bluff Head in 1939, north of the Inuit community of Rigolet. It was there that at age 7 she began sewing grass and by her teens she was already quite adept at this craft. For many of her adult years, she lived and worked in the urban setting of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, where she continued to sew a great variety of her coveted grass baskets and mats. She entered her pieces in a number of exhibitions, shows and festivals, where she took top honors. She also gave workshops in basketry and taught her daughter Josie the art of grasswork. As an Inuit elder, she still continues to sew her beautiful grass baskets and galleries, museums, and collectors world-wide are proud to show a  piece or pieces of her work in their collections.
