Hello, my name is Michelle. While living in Australia, an Astrologer told me that I would be moving across the world where I would then find my passion work and make a living of it. Crazy right?
Five years later after moving back to Canada, I fell in love with weaving on a trip to Mexico. The bright colours and the use of yarn sparked something in me. I wanted to learn asap, but I couldn’t find any workshops anywhere near me.
So, after picking up my first loom that came from the other side of the world, I taught myself how to weave. Family and friends began to ask me to teach them too! Then friends of friends wanted to learn and through the grape vine strangers were asking. We also didn’t have any looms made in Canada, so I asked my super talented Dad to make me a loom. And that is the beginning of it all. Now I teach workshops all over Ontario, Canada and my Dad is creating gorgeous looms that are being used around the world!
All my work is handmade and one of a kind. The materials used are mainly natural wool, handspun and hand dyed colours. Each piece is inspired by my daily surroundings and moods. I enjoy creating custom pieces and challenging myself and my creativity.
