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.
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!) See the button above if you'd like to have me teach or lecture for you remotely.
YarnFest, Loveland, CO. April 12-15, 2018
I'll be teaching two one-day classes:
- Weaving Tapestry on Little Looms on Thursday April 12 (class is FULL)
- Tapestry Answers: Is tapestry weaving for me? on Friday April 13 (As of March 22, there were still openings in this class!)
I am moving more and more to hosting my own retreats instead of teaching for guilds or conferences. So if you'd like to work with me in person, take a look at my retreat page HERE.
Upcoming retreats are:
Vermont 2018: Foundations Retreat, May 17-21, 2018
Colorado 2018: The design challenge. How do you know what to weave if you don't have an art background?
Taos, N.M., Mabel Dodge Luhan House, January 24-28, 2019.
Details are HERE.
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.
