Textile Odysseys to the Most Creative Corners of the World!
When I am not weaving, I am busy discovering and exploring many unique corners of the world. In my "real life," I own and operate an adventure travel company, NatureQuest. We offer a variety of uncommon journeys for the active traveler throughout the world that focus on the culture, wildlife and indigineous peoples of this planet.
I decided to use this expertise to offer unique travel experiences around the world to adventurous weavers. Each journey offered by Loom Dancer Weaving Odysseys immerses the fiber enthusiast in the culture of the destinatinon as well as offer a hands-on opportunity to participate in various workshops of that country's textile tradition.
My work is currently on display and for sale at Tierra Wools in the village of Los Osos located in the scenic Chama Valley of Northern New Mexico.
for the Adventurous Fiber Artist
As an avid explorer and a weaver, I feel there is a timeless connection between these two passions to explore. I have combined my travel industry expertise with my love and appreciation of weaving to create Loom Dancer Weaving Odysseys.
Each year, several journeys that focus on and explore the various weaving centers of the world are offered to adventurous fiber enthusiasts. These odysseys offer the discovery of colorful destinations combined with an opportunity for a "hands on" textile experience in the style and tradition of that country. The trips are a small group, intimate travel experience limited to just a handful of fiber fanatics and creative travelers. Check out these photos of some of our latest adventures in Peru, Scotland, Oaxaca, Canyon de Chelly, Canada and more...
