My name is Kathrin Weber and I have been weaving and dyeing since 1975. I live in the mountains of NC which is a very supportive community for artists and other self-employed people. I sell through galleries, directly to customer through commissions and also through fine quality Art and Craft Shows.
Color and the flow of color are the focus of my handwoven work. My clothesline is regularly draped with long and colorful yarns drying in the sun. I weave by hand on large wooden floor looms using cotton and other cellulose fibers in my Blankets, Throws, Runners, Pillows and Bags. Sturdy and simple weave structures are the basis for the functional items I make.
When I am not dyeing or weaving, I am likely to be found teaching workshops on dyeing and weaving. Please take a look at my link to classes I am teaching this year. Or perhaps Previous Classes that your local fiber guild might want me to come teach your group.
I am a member of The Amercian Craft Council, the Southern Highland Craft Guild, Piedmont Craftsmen and Carolina Designer Craftsmen. Additionally, I teach weaving at the John C. Campbell Folk Scool, Penland School of Crafts, Arrowmont School of Art and Craft ... and through the Fiber Guild closest to you! If I haven't taught in your area recently, please contact me and we will make a plan.
