It was such a pleasure to talk with Hilary L. Hahn in her beautiful home! Hilary has worked as a teaching artist for over 15 years. She shares how she began teaching and how she has shifted her career over the years. While continuing to teach at elementary schools, Hilary has been hosting workshops and private lessons, collaborating with stores and companies, and creating a niche for herself in Los Angeles. She is now offering an online course for creatives to share what she has learned about creating and promoting workshops. We dig into time management and just how she does it all while also mothering and making time for her own creative practice. Hilary also talks about her experience with set design, mural painting, watercolor, and how her practice has evolved. She now focuses primarily on fiber arts and natural dyes.
Hilary L Hahn is a California textile artist and educator. She serves a community of creatives, craftsmen, and artists, who wish to deepen their knowledge of various fine crafts emphasizing textiles through writing, workshops, and e-courses.
She creates modern textile designs inspired by natural dye processes, indigo, and interior design.
