Why I Create: Sara Nordling

Sara Nordling has been involved in fiber art in many forms for most of her life; weaving however, didn’t enter until Sara was an adult and she was hooked immediately. What began as a hobby turned into a passion and a return to school for a B.F.A. and then an M.F.A. in studio art/textiles. Sara currently is a limited term lecturer at Indiana/Purdue Universities, Fort Wayne where she teaches drawing, painting and design. She has also given workshops to guilds in Indiana and has taught at weaving conferences in Illinois, Texas and Indiana. Her current work focuses on various forms of double weave including double weave pleats, pick-up techniques, networked and blocks. Sara enjoys the technical side of weaving as well as the color, textures and rhythms weaving provides.
