& International Observations
Guest Speaker | Jean Degenfelder
JEAN DEGENFELDER of Jean’s Handwovens holds a Bachelor of Arts in Clothing and Textiles from San Diego State University and began weaving in 1994. She has continued her training at fiber workshops, seminars and conferences in the United States and Europe and Asia. She shares her passion for fibers in classrooms throughout San Diego County, and during the summer, operates a summer school for young artists at her studio, which is housed in a yurt at her family compound in northern San Diego County. For weaver and designer Jean Degenfelder, it all begins with color. Her one-of-a-kind jackets, shawls, bags, capes, and specialty garments are infused with hues that can be rich, bright, and vibrant, or more subtle and muted in nature. Jean blends cotton, rayon chenille and silk in her work, and is now incorporating Tencel™ which has a silk-like quality and creates a soft cloth that drapes easily. Once Jean has created the cloth, its size and texture help determine which garments she will create.
Jean's work has been shown at Contemporary Craft Market, Santa Monica, and San Francisco; American Art Festivals, San Jose, San Diego, and Santa Monica; Festival of Arts, Tempe, Arizona; and Great Arts and Crafts Festival, Las Vegas, among other venues. Her work is available at Weaving Southwest, Taos, New Mexico; The Weaving Center, New Hampshire, and on the internet through her website.
