Martha Owen
Share:
Martha learned to spin at the Folk School in 1978 and had sheep, Angora rabbits, and border collies by 1980. She started teaching at the Folk School in the '80s. Also a banjo player and known to tell a story or two, Martha's interests in sheep and wool, and music and dance, have carried her quite literally and joyfully around the world. Her children say she is a "wool nerd," but her sheep say she is outstanding in her field! She is a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild; former co-owner of Yarn Circle fiber shop in Murphy, NC; and the Folk School's Resident Artist in Spinning, Knitting, Dyeing and Feltmaking. Find her on Facebook at Martha Owen Woolens.
