Anne is retired from two professional careers and now deep into “weaving and dyeing”! She stumbled upon hand weaving at a retreat at Holden Village in Washington State years ago and became passionate about it almost immediately. Anne loves combining colors, textures, and fibers in unusual ways to create one-of-a-kind wearable art. She weaves scarves, shawls, garments, and fabric for clothing as well as household linens and other functional textiles.
Anne teaches hand weaving on both rigid heddle and floor looms, and shibori dyeing at her home studio and other locations in and around Dallas. Her teaching has included people of all ages and even students who speak no English! She is excited to share her love of weaving with other new weavers, and is available for workshops or private lessons.
