Experience the Beauty of Wearable Art
Welcome to Dreamweaving Designs where you will find unique one-of-a-kind wearable art.
My specialty is nuno felting which is felting on cloth. Hand-dyed silks and cottons are combined with wool to create garments that are rich in color and texture and have a beautiful drape. My work is influenced by Polly Stirling who, along with her assistant Sachiko Kotaka, created nuno felting.
In addition to nuno felting, I am a natural dyer and printer. I love combining natural elements to create new and interesting fabrics.
I can be found working and teaching my craft to others at Ashland Art Center and my working studio at 258 A Street, #10, Ashland, Oregon.
Culture and creativity abound in the small town of Ashland, Oregon, where I live and keep my studio. Nestled in the Rogue Valley and surrounded by the Siskiyou and Cascade Mountain ranges, I draw upon this area’s beauty to bring fluidity, color and texture to my work.
If you would like to wrap yourself in nuno felt, enter my shop and treat yourself today.
