Chloe Findlay-Harder

I began teaching sewing classes to kids in 2001 and now teach art, crafts, sewing and more to kids and adults. I first picked up a piece of my mother's embroidery when I was three years old and proudly exclaimed "Mummy, I 'broider now!". Ever since then I've been passionate about creating and have taken part in several group and solo art exhibitions with my fibre and encaustic art. I apprenticed and performed as a puppeteer for several years as well as training in visual arts with a master artist from New York.

Chloe teaches Family Fun, Stories & Art, and School Programs at the gallery. You can also find her teaching craft programs for children at Smeltzer House.
