Jannie Taylor

My fascination with textiles and handweaving began in the heady 1970s and has only increased in the intervening years.  I am intrigued by the interplay of color, structure and fiber available only to the handweaver.  Sitting at my loom, throwing the shuttle and watching the threads being interlaced into a textile that began as an idea in my head is still, after all these years, a joyful and amazing experience.

Since I love teaching and am fascinated by weaving, it was just natural that at some point I should begin offering classes and workshops in an effort to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with other weavers. I now teach advanced weaving classes at the AVL Weaving School and structure-based workshops for guilds and conferences.
