Instructor Bio:

Riley Kleve (they/them) is a nonbinary craft artist and educator in Minneapolis. Their work in handspun yarn, weaving, knitting, and embroidery mines archives and historic textile techniques to create a queerer vision of the future. Their art often invites the viewer to participate in craft traditions in a new way. Riley has taught classes at Textile Center, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota, American Swedish Institute, and independently. Their approach to teaching pairs play and experimentation with history and technique, allowing students to learn a skill in a way that feels natural to them. Outside of the classroom and gallery, Riley runs Better Days Yarn Co., contributes to Spin Off Magazine, and is a member of Embodied Material and facilitator for Queer Threads. Riley holds a BA in Studio Art and Curatorial Practice from Hampshire College (MA) and is in the process of obtaining a Master Spinner Certificate from Olds College.
