Welcome to your Happy Place!
My name is Anja Caldwell. I grew up in Germany where I got introduced to traditional handwork in elementary school.
After a career as an architect with a focus on sustainability and green building I opened my studio in Potomac in 2016.
In here we focus on the traditional handwork techniques of knitting, crocheting, embroidery, sewing, felting, weaving ... - and much more.
These fiber techniques and skills, still mastered by the older generation, are at the verge of going extinct. I have set out to change that!
Therefore, the FiberArt.Studio provides classes in various fiber techniques for children and adults, at all levels. Personally I like to combine old techniques with fresh design ideas - often.
Myself and guest instructors are experienced in fiber arts techniques of all kinds - most of us have been crafting and creating since childhood. We are eager to share our passion - and pass on our extensive knowledge and skills to you. We want to get you hooked, literally.
And if you already know what your doing, just come and sit with us. FiberArt.Studio is your escape too - we are all about mindfulness and conviviality in here.
FiberArt.Studio is designed to be a quiet and cosy space, and I like to keep it that way. Therefore our inventory is also small and exclusive - I think yarn should be used, not stashed (note to hubby: no, this does NOT apply to our home)
So in case we do not have what you want, we will source and order it for you, delivered to your door by our fiber elves from all over the country.
And if you don't quite know what you need yet, I can help you with that too.
Whatever fiber art you want to explore - come on in!
I can hardly wait to meet you, and see what we can create together.
