Mireille Gagnon Moes "fleurdefibre".

I am a self-employed, independent fibre/textile craft/artisan/artist. I am process oriented, self taught with attendance to specialized courses/classes/workshops from master practitioners. Exhibited extensively locally (Algoma/Sudbury region) won awards, originated and curated a fine crafts exhibition “Wabi Sabi” in Richards Landing for the first 5 years of the event. (2000-2005). Wabi Sabi stopped in 2020.

During the pandemic, I taught Zoom sessions sponsored by AlgomaTrad and Thinking Rock. Made a commissioned piece for Jumblies Theatre, Toronto. Participated in a in person and virtual group exhibition “(dé)coupures”.

I have not stopped learning and creating in the fibre/textile medium from the first day I started some 40 years ago. This is what I do year-round as long as I have my health!
