Finding wellness through making.
Hi! I'm Carolyn Carleton is the fiber artist and designer behind Living Skies Fibre Studio.
Fibre arts became a source of mental wellness during a time of health issues several years ago, and has continued to be a passion today.
My fiber arts journey began with knitting alongside my Grandmother in my teens and the love of fiber has never left. I live in the Land of Living Skies - Saskatchewan, Canada with my husband and two adult daughters - where I am continuously inspired by the natural beauty which influences my original crochet & knitting designs. I have had the opportunity to have my designs featured in magazines, subscription boxes and best-sellers on Etsy and Ravelry.
Because of my love of fibre I have been teaching the craft for several years at my local arts centre and in school classrooms. In 2019 I created a hands-on workshop called Weaving into Wellness which incorporates a woven craft and teaching on the mental health benefits through creating with fibre.
I have recently become an ambassador for the Campaign for Wool in Canada.
