Cornell University’s Associate Professor of Fiber Science directs The Textiles Nanotechnology Laboratory at the College of Human Ecology. His focus is on understanding fundamental phenomena at the nanoscale that are of relevance to Fiber and Polymer Science. His work explores the interface between the technologically established and mature field of textile science and the emerging and revolutionary field of nanoscale science. He compares this impact on textiles to that of the eighteenth century industrial revolution.
Judy sort of fell into fiber art. From childhood mud pies and seed pictures through a scouting history of collecting and creativity, she found weaving when her children were young. Weaving led her through a journey of fiber arts which eventually focused on basketry. Since 1993 she has taught at conferences and workshops and volunteers her skills at numerous other venues. She is now enjoying the addition of grandchildren to her life equation…and is wondering where her fiber journey will next lead her. See more on our Instructor page or visit her website:
Passionate weaver of rugs, tartans and other traditional and non-traditional weave structures. Kati travels extensively and teaches wherever her travels take her. She works primarily in natural yarns with a special love for linen. Author of two books, she has begun work on another.
Karen has a B.A. in Fiber Arts and teaches adult and children's classes at local art and community centers. Trained as a traditional weaver, she stumbled upon the SAORI freestyle way of weaving by accident. The random use of color, pattern, and texture fit well with her style. She completed her studies under Mihoko Wakabayashi, founder of the first US studio. Her goal is to introduce adults and children to SAORI weaving as a tool for self discovery and inner healing, and to assist others in releasing their hidden creativity.
