Nancy Crampton

I took my first weaving class in 1967 at Western Michigan University and I knew this was “it”. The joke in our family is that when we first got married we bought a mattress to sleep on and a floor loom. I have a BS in art from Western Michigan University and did graduate work in craft design at Florida State University. I teach workshops at art centers, weaving conferences and guilds, including Convergence 2018, and yearly at John C. Campbell Folk School in NC. I continue my education by taking workshops from other artists.

 

In addition to teaching, my work is represented in public and private collections. I have participated in national wholesale and retail shows and am represented by several galleries. I participate in retail craft fairs and solo and group shows during the year, showing tapestries, rugs and other weavings. I am active in the Weavers Guild of Kalamazoo and the American Tapestry Alliance.
