On Sabbatical in 2019
We deeply enjoyed operating West County Fiber Arts School for the past 3 years. It gave us the opportunity to meet and work with many talented local, national and international fiber artists and to develop close friendships with students and teachers alike. We opened the school to realize our dream of bringing together students interested in the fiber arts with the best teachers in their craft, in a beautiful and inspiring setting. It has been our privilege to meet and work with so many wonderful people.
For 2019, Heidi decided to take a one-year sabbatical to travel and to focus on a list of personal projects that have been on the back burner for a while. She has been given the opportunity to take classes one on one with a couple of our teachers, at home and abroad, and is going to jump at this chance. She will post her journey on our Facebook page.
Dustin, whom many of you know as a natural dyer and graphic designer, will continue to be active in the fiber community. She is currently working with Black Rock Ranch in Stinson Beach to bring more fiber arts classes to Marin County, and is in conversation with Fibershed about possible classes as well.
We will continue to update the WFCA website on at least a quarterly basis, with news about classes available throughout the community. So please keep checking our Classes by Friends page. You may also find contact information for instructors on our Teachers page.
We encourage you all to follow your passions in 2019, and to continue your education in the arts.
