Instructor Bio:

Katherine Buenger (she/her) has a degree in studio art from Macalester College. She enjoys many fiber-related arts, including weaving, spinning, ply-split braiding, button making, and braiding with Sami tin thread. Whether it is spinning the yellow pages, computer tape, or adding telephone wire to weavings, she likes finding something different and fun to do with her art. She is not afraid to break the rules and try something new, and encourages others to do the same. Katherine has taught at The Weavers Guild of Minnesota, Midwest Weavers Conference, Minnesota Federation of Weavers and Spinners, White Bear Center for the Arts, Marine Mills Folk School, American Kumihimo Society, Upper Midwest Bead Society and other venues. After teaching thousands of students, she is still having fun sharing her crafts with others.
