Sue McFarland has been weaving since 1982. She has a degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in painting, attended the Art Institute of Boston, and has a BA in Arts Administration from UMass. She received her master’s degree from Lesley University in the Creative Arts and Learning Program. A traditional handweaver for over 25 years, Sue apprenticed with a local felt maker. Since that time she has expanded her fiber repertoire to include both two-dimensional and three-dimensional felt work. Sue maintains a studio in Buckland, MA in a historic building that was a former cutlery mill . She not only sells her work at retail fairs and select galleries in MA, CT and VT but also conducts workshops incorporating the fiber arts for K-12 students, adults and educators. Her work uses traditional textile fabrication techniques and is influenced by the natural world in both form and color.
