Local Cloth Resident Artists are fiber-art professionals who share a personal passion and commitment for teaching and sharing fiber art techniques, design and traditions while developing their own bodies of work. Our mission is to collaborate with Local Cloth by offering a wide array of learning opportunities and experiences that will engage communities and bring new appreciation for the fiber arts.
Danielle Burke received a BFA in Fiber Arts & Humanistic Studies from the Maryland Institute College of Art
before moving to the Asheville area. Thanks to a Windgate Fellowship, her current work focuses on historical
weaving patterns from the Southern Highlands region of Appalachia. With Local Cloth she is hoping to bring in
the wider community for various events and engage in the question of why we make.
