(i.e. The Singing Weaver Teaches)

I present a variety of programs, seminars, and workshops about weaving and music.  

I've given presentations for adults and children at libraries, museums, festivals, fairs, guilds, private homes, conferences, colleges, schools and on the radio.

  • My presentations are "ideas" generated
  • Technique is presented as the way to make what is in your head visible in the easiest manner
  • Technique focus is on experimentation and adapting what I demonstrate to what works for the student. Creativity is on par with perspiration!
  • I incorporate a variety of lessons and exercises to reach different learning styles
  • The schedule is paced to accommodate all skill levels
  • The learning atmosphere is open and accepting of each participant's ideas, skills and efforts
  • Structure is organized to accomplish workshop objectives, but flexible to accommodate the needs of the participants

My teaching goal: inspire students to honor and develop their own creativity while gaining technical skill
