Liz’s interest and enthusiasm for fiber arts runs the gamut. Primarily self-taught, she has over ten years’ combined experience in knitting, hand-stitching, decorative embroidery and natural dye work. She was first introduced to natural dyes while working as a naturalist and farm educator some years back. The magic of coaxing living color from plants was irresistible and natural dye work quickly became a cornerstone of her creativity. With an emphasis on using garden-grown or locally foraged dye materials, Liz’s work reflects an intentional practice in slowing down and cultivating an ever-growing connection between self and sense of place.
