Your Instructor:

Patricia Magee, widely known as "The Tartan Lady", has over 30 years experience with weaving Scottish family tartans. She finds "Weaving natural products is my particular joy." She has had the fascination with tartan weaving since when as a child she saw a Scottish pipe band on her native Saltspring Island and was captivated by the swirl of colours of the Scottish kilts.
