Instructor Dawn Livera

Dawn Livera is a visual artist primarily working in textiles and mixed media, with a focus on “freestyle weaving”. In freestyle weaving “there are no mistakes”. Community engagement is an important part of her practice. Dawn believes that making art should not be the private domain of the “talented” or “learned” few. Rather, everyone should feel free to explore their own creativity without worrying about whether their art is “good enough”.
