Kala Exworthy learned to weave in Sandefjord, Norway, in 1980. It took a few years, but she finished her BFA in fiber art at Northern Michigan University. Now, any available time is spent living her dream: enjoying her studio space and teaching at the Weaver's Guild of Minnesota in Minneapolis. She says, "Weaving, with its endless possibilities, fascinates me. It's like creating a tangible story with a purpose. The texture of the thread, the color it's next to, the direction it's laying, the light it's exposed to, all influence what we see. My favorite ingredient is the color, I can play endlessly with color combinations and textures."
