Weaving Circles

I am delighted to say that I am now a Weaving A Life weaving circle leader, certified through the Weaving A Life program and taught by Susan Merrill, creator of Weaving A Life.

Weaving Circles and Weaving in Therapy

I offer people the opportunity to join Weaving Circles where small groups of individuals can move through some or all of the Weaving a Life keyforms with guidance and opportunities for self-reflection. Individuals may also work with me in my Shelburne, VT studio space to move through the series of projects either as a distinct series or as part of longer-term therapy.

From my own lived experience and through my training with Susan Merrill, I’ve come to see weaving as well as other handcrafts as a path towards healing. Life has so many twists, turns, opportunities for grief, joy, love and sorrow~ experiencing texture, color and shape as one moves through each project creates the space for choice and focus to emerge, allowing a person to reclaim, or claim for the first time, the path they want to traverse.

I hold Weaving Circles for adolescents and adults at various times through the year. I also visit schools and am able to provide one-class workshops or a series of classes to children of every age. Weaving is for everyone.

If you have a group that would like to participate in a one project or several project weaving circle, message me here and we can discuss the details. If you are an individual looking to do some creative weaving work, you are also welcome to contact me here.

If you would like to hear more about these or other offerings, please Contact me.

COVID-19 Updates: I have a studio space in Shelburne, Vermont that is spacious and airy. During late spring, summer and fall, I will be creatively figuring out how to host small groups of children and/or adults to do one or more weaving sessions. Dates are not yet set, but if you have questions or would like to request a session, please contact me. I anticipate setting up a shade tent next to my space that can be a sort of outdoor classroom, and masks will be required until we are given the green-light to operate without them.
