Faculty: Laurie Allan-Ungeitis
Laurie Allan-Ungeitis found her passion for fibre and textiles after visiting a friend's sheep farm in New York, where she discovered the joys of spinning and weaving. Learning to knit and sew at a young age from her mother, gave her an early love of all things textile. She enjoys multi-harness weaving in a wide variety of structures and continues her studies toward a Master Weaver designation. Her most recent study has been weaving with recycled textiles and their incredible diversity with societal benefits. Laurie is recognized for her motivating enthusiastic teaching style. While nurturing creative opportunities, she emphasizes the importance of a strong technical foundation.
