Throughout my history as instructor and head of the Fibers program at Lane Community College and as adjunct professor at the University of Oregon, I have had the responsibility to teach many fiber art courses; dyeing, weaving, felting, textile printing, and other surface design techniques. Now outside of an institutional setting, I continue to teach, both at my studio and at workshops where I am invited.
