I teach workshops and retreats throughout North America. See the schedule below for my live appearances.
I also lecture and teach remotely for guilds and other interested groups. If you'd like to have me present to your group over the internet including a live call with a Q&A session, click the button below for what I am currently offering in this format.
All done! I am finished with my teaching schedule for this year. Thanks to all the marvelous guilds and conferences that brought me in. I enjoyed working with all of you.
I will not be teaching any guild classes in 2018. I am taking a break from this kind of teaching to focus on my online students as well as weaving a large commission (follow that adventure on my blog!)
YarnFest, Loveland, CO. April 12-15, 2018
These tapestry retreats are in the planning stages. Make sure to sign up for my newsletter so you are ready when more information becomes available and registration opens. They almost always fill in the first few days.
Vermont 2018: Good Commons, Plymouth, VT. May 17-21, 2018.
Registration will open in January. The retreat will be another design-oriented masterclass for beginning-intermediate students.
Colorado 2018: CSU Mountain Campus, Pingree Park, CO. June 23-27, 2018
Registration will open in Feburary. This will be a retreat focused on using environmental prompts to make sketch-type tapestries.
Tapestry Foundations: I am considering adding another retreat (venue unknown) that is a sort of "tapestry bootcamp" for beginners and people who want a good foundation in tapestry weaving. I'll start at the beginning and we might even make our own copper pipe looms as part of the experience. Anyone interested? Contact me.
What happens in a tapestry retreat?
One of my goals as a tapestry instructor is to create learning opportunities that best encourage students to continue learning and improving their skills. I offer several tapestry retreats a year. For details of past retreats, see the links below.
Vermont 2016: A masterclass in color and design.
Vermont 2017: Line it up!
Colorado 2017: Building a new practice of creating: drawing inspiration from your surroundings.
