Born in Norwich, England, Cheryl emigrated to the United States in her teens and currently resides in Penfield, Georgia with her husband. She is a graduate of the State University of New York, Farmingdale and the University of Georgia, Athens.

 Intrigued by the craft, she was inspired to learn weaving and has gained expertise through self-study and workshops.  Her philosophy is that beyond careful execution, weaving must be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing.  By combining a variety of fibers with traditional motifs, this artist creates unique and timeless apparel and household weavings which she  markets under the name
                                                                         “Shepherd’s  Delight

Cheryl’s weaving has been featured in numerous shows and exhibits. She also has a strong commitment to imparting her enjoyment of the craft to others. To this end she does programs and demonstrations for schools and community organizations. She works with Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites and under her guidance several historic looms have been restored and are now being used and enjoyed.

The workshop is appropriate for advanced beginners and will allow participants to explore the technique of weaving transparencies using a linen warp for the background cloth with wools and other weft fibers to execute a simple design using a cartoon provided by the instructor or one of your own creation.  This two day workshop will give you the basics you need to further explore weaving transparencies.   Participants must be able to independently warp their own loom prior to the class.  The fee for the workshop includes the use of a guild loom one week before the class and one week afterwards to complete your project.  Looms for the workshop should be 2-4 shaft floor or table looms.  The preference is for floor looms.  No rigid heddle looms.
