Emily has loved fiber, jewelry, and sparkly things as long as she can remember. After receiving her BFA from Adrian College where she studied metalsmithing and textile techniques, she learned to spin as a way to get back in the classroom. Now she creates handcrafted jewelry and hand dyed fiber goods for her business, Bricolage Studios, and teaches classes and workshops throughout the United States on spinning, fiber preparation, and jewelry/metalsmithing. Emily works from a cooperative fiber studio in Kalamazoo, MI.
Notes from the PLY team:
When Emily isn't teaching this week, you can find her in the marketplace at her Bricolage Studios Booth, which you should really check out. She's amazing creative and talented and has long been a favorite fiber artist of those of us here at PLY. She writes for PLY quite often and is our go-to for creative beautiful fiber preps.
