I love teaching slow fashion and fiber arts. It’s a core part of my studio practice and my work in community building, social practice, and supporting Slow Fashion through handcraft, sustainability, and mindfulness or “mendfulness”. Teaching is the cornerstone of my work. I offer workshops and tutorials online, in-person, and through my books. My workshops range from just a few hours to week-long retreats, see below for upcoming classes.


Save-the-date: I’m thrilled to host this weekend workshop in my private art studio with my dear friend and dyer-extraordinaire, Sasha Duerr. We’ll forage dye plants from my garden, dye, stitch, mend, consider how slow textiles plays a role in slow living, and eat delicious local food with like-minded folks. Details and registration will open soon–check back for details.
