Carolyn’s interest in weaving started fifteen years ago because of a casual conversation about sheep, wool, border collies and spinning. The conversation made her want to learn to weave. She studied at a local art center, going on to take additional classes at the Weavers Place in Maryland, and then she joined the Weaver’s Guild of Greater Baltimore. Carolyn has also taken classes at the John C. Campell Craft School. Carolyn’s skills and knowledge have increased as a result of workshops sponsored by the guild, and through participation in regional conferences. Carolyn continues her professional development with additional classes at the Manning Weaving School, in Pennsylvania. Currently a member of the Hand Weavers Guild of the New River Valley, she is also a member of the Reynolds Homestead Weavers Exchange.
