Diana is an experienced fibre arts instructor with a background in adult education and fine art. Passionate about fibre, fabric, colour and texture, she has introduced many beginners to the wonders of making yarn and has helped experienced spinners experiment with technique, colour, and fibre to take their spinning to a new level. She especially loves spindles because of their simplicity, beauty and portability. Living in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Diana is a regular fibre arts instructor for the Langley Weavers and Spinners guild as well as at Fibres West in Cloverdale, Knit City in Vancouver, and Valley Yarns in Surrey. Since 2010 she has travelled to Haida Gwaii on three amazing occasions to teach 2-day workshops in spindle spinning for the Haida Gwaii Arts Council.
If you've ever wanted to venture into the world of spinning, using suspended spindles is a great way to start. All you need is a spindle and some fibre to start creating beautiful handspun yarn to knit and weave with.
