I teach and lecture internationally, and maintain working/classroom studios in San Antonio, Texas. My passions include the psychology of artistry and meaning.

Everything I teach and do is filtered through a deep connection to the energetic, spiritual aspects of human experience. I believe each of us has an inner Creative. Making things - whether it's cooking, painting a room, or dyeing cloth - is supremely satisfying. In the process of creating we are linking to every generation of makers before us and reaching for the Divine at the same time. It's a gift and a pleasure everyone should experience! And can.



Jane Dunnewold teaches and lectures internationally, and has mounted numerous solo exhibitions, including Inspired by the Masters (Texas Quilt Museum (2018)–also slated for exhibition at the National Quilt Museum in 2020.
