As a crafty kid with an interest in history, folk art was bound to lure her in. After taking a weaving class from Vesterheim in 2019, she quickly fell down the fiber arts rabbit hole. And it has been a great adventure so far! Drawing inspiration from history for artistic inspiration fueled an early interest in ceramics from around the world. Branching out into weaving has opened up a whole new world to explore. Learning about the endless ways that people have created objects in the past is fascinating and inspiring and encourages Sheila to try techniques for herself. She is looking forward to seeing where the weaving path will take her and exploring this great opportunity!
