Instructor: Janelle Kozeny
Instructor Bio: Janelle Kozeny is a fiber artist who lives in Omaha. She received her Bachelor's degree from Clarkson College in Nursing in May of 2016, which lead her to a career as an oncology nurse at Nebraska Medicine. After graduating, she was looking for a hobby that she could enjoy outside of work which lead her to her new obsession, weaving! She found herself spending hours researching new weaving techniques and different yarns/fibers to experiment with and incorporate into my woven tapestries. Janelle says, "For me, it (weaving) has always been very therapeutic and the creative outlet that I needed. I am self-taught so I would love to pass on my knowledge to other aspiring weavers to inspire them to create their own tapestries."
