Meet Your Tutor - Colleen Plank

Colleen's passion for creating textiles has taken her to many exciting and interesting locations, that has at times included attending workshops.

The most memorable of those have been the artists' own creative spaces where it has been possible to fully immerse herself in the creative experience.

What drives Colleen's enthusiasm is the opportunity to share her extensive knowledge of Felting, Dyeing and Textile Manipulation techniques with anyone wishing to try out something new or to inspire and mentor the more experienced students ready to extend their skills.

“Being creative with textiles is the one constant that keeps me stimulated and connected with wonderful people and places.”
