Alison Irwin lives in Maple Bay and has a weaving studio set up in her home. She teaches beginner courses and more advanced classes both locally and beyond BC’s borders. One look at her handouts and you know she's got a graphic arts background! Several of her projects have been published in 'Handwoven' magazine (Interweave Press, Loveland, Colorado).
Alison also likes to keep a camera close by. Some of the images taken on her walks down to the beach, or out in the yard, or in the studio are then altered a little or a lot in Adobe Photoshop Elements.
