Little Wren, Big City..

Yesterday I had the honor of teaching a companion class at the
David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh during the 

The companion classes were hosted by the lovely 
Society for Contemporary Craft for folks who were attending
the convention that were 'non-turners' of wood.

I ended up taking the long way around to the craft room
and stumbled on some beautiful roof top green spaces.

We had a wonderful time weaving some mug-rugs
with my  'Found Object Kits'.

Thank you ladies for a most wonderful afternoon!
Safe travels to all who were visiting from out of town!

Wishing you many more happy 
weaving projects..

Infinite Nature

 "I thank you God for this most amazing day, 
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, 
and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, 
which is infinite, which is yes." 

~e.e. Cummings

Yesterday I had the honor of teaching a natural dye class

Lots of mixing, dipping, stirring, rinsing..

There were rockets.


It was the airshow and the Blue Angels flew over head.

Thank you ladies for a most amazing day.
May your spirits leap and soar as you continue to find rainbows.

Weave all the things...

This past weekend I spent two days at the Society for Contemporary Craft 
teaching a DIY weaving workshop.

We made picture frame looms and created a custom wall hanging.
Students learned some basic tapestry stitches and how to 
source and use reclaimed fibers.

So. Much. Fun!!!

A few samples of their gorgeous weaving..
