Focus on Fiber Workshops...

Kate LarsonWe are pleased to Welcome Fiber Artist Kate Larson to Sauder Village during our annual Focus on Fiber Arts Event. Kate loves using fiber arts as a bridge between her passions for art and agriculture. Her fiber journey has led her to a degree in Environmental Soil Chemistry, travels through northern Europe in search of textile traditions, and back to the farm where her family has lived for six generations. She keeps an ever-growing flock of Border Leicester sheep and teaches handspinning and knitting regularly in central Indiana and around the country. Kate has published articles and designs in Spin-Off Magazine, Jane Austen Knits, Knitting Sweaters from Around the World, and other publications. She manages the Spinner's Connection blog at SpinningDaily.com. You can find her at katelarsontextiles.com.
