Jen Weber has been a craft enthusiast all her life. Her background and love for mathematics and science has a clear influence on her fiber arts pursuits. Her passion for complex designs and symmetry can be seen in her weaving, but most significantly in her obsession with Japanese temari. As a member of the Japanese Temari Association, she is working to spread the excitement of this craft throughout the Western world. The only thing she finds more enjoyable than figuring out geometric fiber arts puzzles is sharing her passions with others. Jen loves to break down seemingly complex topics into simple steps, so that every student can both understand the process, and create something new and beautiful. Her pet peeve is hearing people say “I could never make that!”— she is out to prove them wrong!
Jen has presented temari workshops and demonstrations to fiber guilds and has taught classes introducing the craft to our community.
Jen has taught up and down the east coast, at private studios, guild workshops and Red Stone Glen. Her work was featured at a gallery exhibit at the Liriodendron Mansion in Hartford county, Maryland in March 2015. She will also be teaching at the 2019 Mid Atlantic Fiber Conference.
