Textile & Fibre Artist and Teacher, Sandra Clarke, has been untangling skeins of yarn and making useful things for never-you-mind years. Born in the colourful, celtic, west-end Montreal neighbourhood of Griffintown, educated in Montreal, New York, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Toronto, helped Sandra developed her eclectic style. Sandra gives traditional arts a contemporary life while still retaining practicality. Sandra divides her time between her home in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada and her off-grid cabin-in-the-woods in Highlands East, Ontario.
