About your mentor
Claire Bessel
When your mentor provides a strapline it will go here
I am a weaving consultant, weaving teacher and woven textile artist. I qualified with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Textile Science and Handloom Weaving from The Swedish School of Textiles in 2009 and have since then been developing my own practice in the field of art and weave design. I’ve developed courses in basic and advanced weaving, draft construction and textile material and have refined them for a range of different audiences through my years of teaching experience. My passion is to spread the joy of weaving to others and always to be learning something myself. In my spare time, I enjoy playing music, learning crafts and languages.
