Fibers graduate with 7 years experience offering weaving, embroidery, and sewing classes in Galway

Methodology

I teach students of all ages and backgrounds, changing the structure of teaching based on individual needs and concerns. I enjoy a casual teaching approach, where students feel free to contact me and ask questions in an open environment. I believe there is a solution to any problem encountered or idea waiting to be made, and know that we can reach that result together.

Background

I am a graduate with a degree in fiber and material studies, focusing in weaving. I've studied in Chicago, Iceland, and Ireland. I love helping my students to learn a new skill, rekindle an old interest, or expand in their own art practice.
