weaver. educator. lecturer.
Dianne Totten, a weaver for 40 years and teacher for over twenty, uses a variation of handwoven shibori to produce what she calls “crimp cloth” to create one-of-a-kind garments with the heat-set fabric. Her expertise in sewing complements her passion for weaving. Dianne’s award-winning work has appeared nationally and internationally. She teaches at John C. Campbell Folk School in NC as well as nationally and internationally for guilds and conferences and has been published in SS&D, Handwoven, Weavers, Complex Weavers Journal, and Vävmagasinet. Väv magazine chose her jacket as “Best in Show” in its category at the Swedish National Convention Fashion Show. I am excited to share with you what I have learned and the techniques I have developed. My latest unique workshop offering is called “Crimp and Create.” Explore this web site to learn more about my workshops and view some of my handwoven garments.
