Meet the Presenters - Susan Ann Broad

A self-confessed craft junkie from an early age, Susan credits her Mother and maternal Grandmother with her inventive approach to manipulated fibre. She learnt to spin, felt and weave in her early 20’s and has enjoyed the supporting influence of Creative Fibre for over 30 years.

After moving from Marlborough to Dunedin several years ago for a life style change, Susan developed her ‘make and make do’ ethic by experimenting with found objects, recycled wire and casting resin. She is now fully occupied designing and crafting her unique range of textile jewelry - ‘Kismet’.

Susan believes extensive experimentation utilising a large ‘library’ of fibre related skills, while holding a clear vision of the desired end product always results in success.

Susan will present sessions titled "Viking Knitting - history and method" and "Wire – Tricks of Successful Manipulation".
