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 occasions to teach 2-day workshops in spindle spinning for the Haida Gwaii Arts Council. Diana taught 4 full-day spinning classes at Old’s College Fibre Week in 2016. She is on the roster to teach again at Olds College Fibre Week 2017, at ANWG 2017 in Victoria BC and the Vancouver Island Fibre Festival in May 2017 in Campbell River, BC.
