STUDIO DIRECTIONS

If you are heading north on the 96 from Ithaca into Trumansburg, you will pass the school on your left and soon be in “downtown.” You will pass Little Venice and Felicia’s Hive on your right. Once you see Dragon Village, park on the street (E Main St) or in the Colonial Laundromat parking lot. Next to the optometrist office you will see a purple door with 15 on it. There will also be signs pointing you towards us!

BIO

In 2004, two years into my undergraduate art degree, I took an elective introductory Fiber course where I handled raw wool for the first time. I learned how to wash, card, dye and felt these fibers to create a handmade textile. I was in love. I had no idea how this newfound relationship would completely change the course of my life.

Over a decade (and many restaurant jobs) later, I am now living my dream, teaching my community how to grow, harvest, and extract color from natural dye plants and how to weave their own cloth. My goal at Luna Fiber Studio is to bring people closer to understanding where cloth comes from, and to open their eyes to the magical processes of creating textiles.

I teach classes and private lessons at Luna Fiber Studio, but have also given workshops at Cornell, Ithaca College, The Johnson Museum of Art, New Roots, Wells College and The Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts. This year I am teaming up with Remembrance Farm to grow a wide array of natural dye plants including indigo, and will also be collaborating with GIAC and the Youth Farm Project.
