Teaching: a.r.t. Weaving

"My goal is to teach the art of weaving to as many people as possible in the Sacramento area. And if I lived somewhere else, my goal would be to teach as many people as possible there as well. 

Weaving teaches us much more than how to make cloth. Learning to weave provides focus and discipline and allows us to practice patience and endurance. These skills, I believe, are necessary to maintain one's sanity in this chaotic world – a world of constant noise, information overload, and a lot of bad news." -Ann Robinson

Background Information

Ann Robinson is originally from Berkeley, CA. She began weaving in 1999 while living in San Antonio, TX. There she studied with Robert Hils, a master weaver at the Southwest School of Art and Craft (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLEw1yYrRwk). Ann returned to Northern California in 2006 and has continued to study weaving and dyeing on her own. 

Ann's most recent shows and exhibits include the Center for Contemporary Art and the Fine Arts Center, both in Sacramento. She is also a featured artist on the Textile and Fiber Art list (http://www.tafalist.com/profile/ann-robinson-textiles/).

Ann's other career, Education, encompassed teaching and student counseling/advising, primarily at post-secondary schools. From 2004-06, she had a private tutoring practice designed to help middle and high school students succeed in their studies. Presently, she teaches weaving classes at the University of California, Davis and meets with private students in their homes.
