Workshop Teacher


Hi, I am Marie, a textile artist and weaving instructor, located near Leiden, in the Netherlands. I have been a weaver for the last 8, almost 9 years now. I was introduced t weaving through a guild in England where I lived at the time. Shortly after weaving my first project with a small toy loom I got my first floor loom. A few years later, when I was pregnant I made a baby wearing wrap and it did not turn out as planned, so I decided to take a professional weaving course for a year and have been weaving daily ever since ( this was better than a Dutch course as it was also a weaving course – my Dutch is still a work in progress). Along the way I have been teaching to friends and family and recently decided to do workshops. I teach on rigid heddle looms (RH looms) as they are small, portable (they fit in my cargobike) and great for beginners to more advanced weavers.
