More about our maker:
Rachel graduated from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago with her BFA in Fiber & Material Studies and went on to earn a Master of Science in Textile Design at Philadelphia University. Her passion for preserving hand-making craft tradition became her mission leading Rachel to found Weaver House, a textile studio dedicated to bringing hand-making consciousness and traditional techniques into the modern home through accessible weaving education.
Rachel’s weaving expertise has taken her all over the world: working as an artist-in-residence in Ireland and Peru, exhibiting her work and teaching courses and workshops on weaving, fiber dyeing, and textile conservation. Most recently, Rachel was published in the book Weaving – Contemporary Makers on the Loom by Ludion, which launched at the Tate Modern this past October.
Rachel’s skill goes far beyond technique; she helps others see textiles as an embodiment of touch, creation, and interpersonal connection, elevating cloth itself as a vital thread woven throughout our human experience.
