Terry Newhouse Flynn

Terry Newhouse Flynn is a textile artist and art educator who creates garments, accessories, and sculptures that combine her interests in woven, braided, and knitted textiles. She credits ten years of daily immersion in a weaving/knitting/braiding shop for deepening her understanding of yarns, color interaction, textile structures, and clothing design. She invited Rodrick Owen to teach Kumihimo in 1993, which led to many years of intense study of braided textiles. She has continued to work with Rodrick, co-publishing two books, Andean Sling Braids, New Techniques for Textile Artists (2016), and Sling Braiding Traditions and Techniques from Peru, Bolivia and Around the World (Nov. 2017). Terry earned a BFA in Fiber (2004) and a M.A.T. in Art Education (2005) from Maryland Institute College of Art. She has taught and co-taught braiding in a variety of venues and is known for her patience helping students understand the braiding process. In her “other life” she enjoys teaching art full-time in Baltimore County, MD to students with special needs. She is also an amateur gardener. Terry is currently finishing editing on a video for beginning braiding on the marudai that will be available in the fall of 2019.
