Discover this technique while designing it in Fiberworks.
She grew up in a floor covering and decoration retail business. She discovered a taste for colors and their impact on our moods. At the age of seventeen, she was introduced to weaving. This art allows her a wide range of creation. She also has a background as a chartered professional accountant which leads her to analyze and want to understand how to design textiles. This thirst for learning has led her to follow several training courses in Quebec, Ontario and even in the United States. She also worked on different types of looms such as 4 harnesses, multi-harnesses and even Jacquard. Her taste for weaving is such that her husband Denis Séguin created Séguin Looms to facilitate her art. She is a member of the Conseil des Métiers d'Art du Québec. Finally, she has been passing on her weaving knowledge since 2012 and her involvement in sharing weaving knowledge is growing with the offer of different group courses across Quebec and private and now even online courses.
