Teaching in my Studio -- I have had a fiber art studio in my home in Portland, Oregon, since 1985. I provide instruction to individuals by appointment.
Teaching in the Portland Area -- As a Community Artist in the Neighborhood Arts Program of the Regional Arts & Culture Council, Portland, Oregon, I taught workshops for all ages in community centers, schools, city parks, and in programs aimed at helping at-risk children and their parents. I have also taught workshops in the Arts-in-Libraries program in Multnomah County, and before- and after-school workshops in the SUN Schools Program (Schools Uniting Neighborhoods). I demonstrate tablet weaving and ply-splitting at various events including the Portland Handweavers Guild Annual Sale (part of the Gathering of the Guilds at the Oregon Convention Center) and at Art in the Pearl in the North Park Blocks on Labor Day Weekend.
