Haliburton School of The ArtsDiane Gonthier's formal textile studies started in England in 1984, followed by specialised workshops in the US. In 2006 she acquired, with distinction, the OHS Fibre Art Certificate in Hand Spinning and the Master Spinner recognition in 2012. Her vivid creative mind is particularly known to widen in scale and structure, the contemporary felt medium. Her work is exhibited in Quebec, Canada and Europe and is encouraged by her regional and provincial Art Councils. Teaching regularly from her studio, in summer art schools and abroad, her initiatives are also contagious through the program Artist at School. www.savoir-faire-textile.com .
