Instructor of Visual Arts, Interlochen College of Creative Arts
Emily has loved fiber, jewelry, and sparkily things since 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. She now creates hand crafted jewelry and hand dyed fiber goods for her business, Bricolage Studios, and teaches classes and workshops both locally and throughout the United States in spinning, fiber blending, and jewelry/metalsmithing. Emily works from a cooperative fiber studio in Kalamazoo, MI where she enjoys the camaraderie of her studio mates and the occasional pint from the attached brewery.
