About the Instructor:
Julia Beaumier is a fiber artist living in Grand Rapids! She recently moved back to Michigan from Washington, DC to be closer to her parents, who live in Montague. She learned how to weave during the pandemic, and when she isn't weaving, she enjoys running, playing board games (especially Catan and Wingspan), spending time on the lake, and hanging out with her dog, Jetta. You can find her on Instagram as @jettaandjules or her website, jettaandjules.com.
ACWL-Nuveen classes are supported in part by grants from the Michigan Arts & Culture Council, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Nuveen Benevolent Trust.
