For over three decades I’ve been enjoying the process of sharing plant fiber weaving with learners of all ages. My way of understanding the universe is through experience, by doing, by using all my senses, and that is the way I teach. I use the many-faceted discipline of plant fiber technology as a doorway to cultural awareness, creativity, academic learning, professional development, and environmental stewardship. My role as an artist not only involves creating art from the landscape, but includes building artisans programs, designing curriculum, and participating in artist residencies.
For now I'm shifting my focus from teaching to documenting. I’m figuring out how to share my favorite lessons about “Weaving Nature”, into a useful form. I want to support those of you working with young people today, who embrace the idea that hands-on-learning is the best teacher.
For now, I hope you will visit some of the past workshops by clicking on the links below to see what fun we've had.
