Sylvia Emard

A life-long student with formal education in anthropology and linguistics, Sylvia is fascinated by the antiquity of textile crafts and celebrates practicing the art of weaving using methods little changed since ancient times. She has been sewing since childhood and weaving and dyeing for more than 25 years. Most recently, she works in her home studio and teaches rigid heddle weaving as well as the occasional dyeing workshop.
