Artist/Instructor/Guide: Amanda discovered her affinity to Fibre art processes during her studies at Alberta College of Art & Design from where she graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her connection and relationship with the natural world are continually explored through both materials and visual imagery. Following graduation, Amanda worked as a florist in the community of High River and stayed connected to the Fibre Arts through her membership with the Sheep Creek Weavers and Fibre Artists Guild. Amanda has taught felting classes in multiple Southern Alberta communities, has shown and sold her fibre-based artworks to private collectors and through local galleries. More recently Amanda has been leading community-based Art Projects in High River and volunteers on the High River Performing Arts Foundation board. Currently, Amanda is an Art and Nature Educator for the Leighton Education Centre.
