This is a blog about The fiber adventures of Cherri Hankins, and her students. And I am Cherri. My studio is in Buckeye, WV. After weaving, felt-making and spinning for 20+ years in the Richmond, VA area, I’ve moved. I have been weaving for 23 years, and teaching fiber arts for 22 years. I have exhibited in fiber art shows across the US and internationally. I no longer travel to sell my work at art shows, but rather have settled in to sell my work on a commission basis, and locally.
2010 presented me with the first opportunity for my first solo exhibit. “Unsighted” was first exhibited at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen. It is an exhibit of fiber arts intended to be experienced using the sense of “touch”.
In my years as an artist, I’ve had the opportunity to teach at many art centers, which include:
The Visual Art Center of Richmond (Formerly The Hand Workshop Art Center)
The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen
Bay School – A Community Art Center (AKA Bay School of the Arts)
The Arts in Orange
The Staunton Augusta Arts Center
Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
I teach weaving, spinning, felting, sewing, embroidery, kumihimo and tie-dye.
