Martha Owen
Share:
Martha is the Folk School's Resident Artist in Spinning, Knitting & Crochet, Feltmaking, Dyeing & Surface Design. Her adventure in spinning began at this very school in 1978. Since then her extended family has included sheep (mostly Corriedale, Shetland, Romney) and Angora rabbits (French). A banjo player known to tell a story or two, Martha's interest in sheep and wool, music and dance has carried her quite literally and joyfully around the world. She reads historical fiction for knitting references and rewinds movies to see the shape of a hat or to draw a color repeat. She is a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and was co-owner of Yarn Circle in Murphy, NC, until deciding to close in 2016. Find her on Facebook at MarthaOwenWoolens.
