Brumley Forest Nature Preserve-Main Expo Area
Margaret Sands

Join local weaver Jan French for a community art project inspired by the elements of Brumley Forest Nature Preserve! Conservation and creativity converge during this project, where everywhere can contribute. Jan French is a multi-fiber artist teaching in Triangle classrooms and festivals. Before she started spinning local wool and cotton, Ms. French was weaving natural materials collected from her yard. While living in Durham she earned graduate degrees in environmental management and design and worked as an environmental planner for many years. Ms. French uses a multidisciplinary and hands-on approach to help students explore new and traditional ways to work with fibers (spinning, weaving, felting, needle felting, knitting ). She enthusiastically shares her fibers hoping to inspire others to make beautiful objects and installations from natural and recycled materials.
