Nancy Shiffrin

Nancy Shiffrin has a BA in studio art, with a concentration in Pottery. In the mid 1980’s she discovered weaving, and she has been exploring the many dimensions of fiber ever since. In 1992 she received the Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving from the Handweaver’s Guild of America. Her work has been exhibited widely, including Craftforms and Fiber National. She loves teaching weavers of all levels, adults and children, and through them is constantly exposed to the delight of discovery.
