Dena has been weaving for over thirty years. Originally trained in Physics and Optics, she has explored color from many different angles. Each piece is created by hand, on a loom. She is a weaver, a weaving teacher and the founder of The Vermont Weaving School, located in Putney, Vermont.
Thread by thread, she creates beautiful garments of rayon chenille, tencel, alpaca, and silk – scarves and shawls to drape around your body, hats to keep you warm, blankets for comfort, and garments that feel and look terrific. Her wearable art moves and glows, combining structure, form, and drape, with the intricate color play that happens between the threads.
