I enjoy sharing plant fiber weaving with learners of all ages. I use this many-faceted discipline as a doorway to cultural awareness, creativity, academic learning, and environmental stewardship. My role as an artist not only involves creating art from the landscape, but includes curriculum designing; artist-in-residencies in schools and environmental learning centers; writing; and professional development.
I'm teaching three workshops at Bainbridge Artisans Resource Network (BARN) in 2017. More info coming soon!
- June 10&11: Cedar From Tree to Pouch, with an evening presentation by Suquamish Weaver Ed Carriere on Fri, June 9 at 6:30.
- August 26&27: Weaving Nature: Projects Blending Culture, Science & Art, with an evening presentation on Fri, Aug 25 at 6:30.
- September 9&10: Paper Making From Your Own Backyard
I'm shifting my focus from teaching to documenting. This year, I'm figuring out how to share my favorite lessons in a simple form, with as many people as possible. For now, I hope you will visit some of the past workshops here and see what fun we've had.
I welcome suggestions and comments as I continue to develop these educational resources. Please don't hesitate to contact me.
