I am a self taught textile artist that has been practicing for over 18 years by using natural dyes and rust. In that time I have developed techniques that I use in my work and am now wanting to share with others. I have shown in many galleries around the nation and have also created a lingerie collection with my textiles that has helped me to discover new processes. Currently I am teaching and designing for other collections of fashion and interiors. I also create my own small collection of scarves, pillows and anything I fancy sewing up.
This workshop will be held at my studio and dye lab. I am situated in the quaint neighborhood of Montavilla. There are restaurants, bars, and cafes within walking distance.
