Artisan Spotlight: Constance Hall

constanceConstance Hall’s passion for fiber started at an early age , when her mother taught her to crochet at the age of five. Since then, she has been exploring the world of fiber arts, enjoying the process along the way and making creativity a way of life.

Constance has expanded her fiber arts exploration into the worlds of knitting, spinning, weaving, sewing, and felting. Along the way, she has studied with some of the top names in the fiber industry:  Jacey Boggs,  Celia Quinn, Sharon Costello, Jane Patrick, Liz Gipson, and Margaret Bouyack, to name a few. She is also a passionate and knowledgable instructor in her own right, delighting in sharing her knowledge with student and watching where it leads them as they embark on their own creative journey.

Dyeology Yarn

In addition to her work in the world of fiber, Constance has worked for 30 years as a glassblower, using a centuries-old tradition to create unique pieces of art. She also dyes yarn for Dyeology, which sources fiber from local farmers as much as possible. She is an active member of the fiber arts community: Constance is on the Spinzilla committee and leads several weaving, felting and other workshops throughout the year. We’re fortunate to have had Constance teach several workshops with us in recent years; she’ll be returning to The Woolery to teach a Nuno Felting Workshop this Saturday, July 13th!

All the best,

Chris, Nancy, and the entire Woolery team
