Education

July 2002: I took a 5 day class called “Fabulous Feltmaking” with Maggie Glossop
teaching at the Mississippi Mills School of the Arts, Algonquin College, Almonte, ON

My experience as an animator, though, gave me the underlying structure
of design and discipline that I find necessary in my work as a fibre artist.
