About me

my website… http://www.suzanneworkhokanson.com

 I love anything to do with fibers! I have been more active in weaving than spinning over the past 20 years but still come back often to knitting because its so portable and adaptable. I just retired from teaching after almost 17 years as an art teacher. My husband and I love to sail. Now that we are foot-loose and fancy-free we plan to spend Oct-April here in Savannah and May-Sept on our 36 foot sailboat docked just south of the Canadian border in Plattsburgh, NY on Lake Champlain. Life is GOOD!

A few years ago, I followed another passion and I published a book Woven: a Bauhaus Memoir. I wrote about the Bauhaus, an exciting art school which existed in Germany between WWI and WWII. My goal was to make history come alive by illustrating and writing a journal in the voice of a Bauhaus student. Anna is a young woman who follows her dream and works with the talented artists who taught at the Bauhaus, such as Kandinsky, Klee, Albers, and Moholy-Nagy, and architects Gropius and van der Rohe. Weaving becomes her passion as she chronicles the tumultuous events of the time and what happened at this avant garde school.

My favorite quote from Bauhaus weaver, Anni Albers:

“My beginning was far from what I had hoped for,

Fate put into my hands limp threads!

Threads to build a future?

But distrust turned into belief

And I was on my way!”
