About the Instructor, Nora Rickey: I am a self taught visual artist and educator living in Minnesota. Raised in an artistic household and trained in NYC, I came into my visual arts practice when I moved back to the sweet Midwest.  Here, I began exploring and teaching myself different fiber arts skills and incorporating them into my work. Whether a hidden secret or on full display, I love to create pieces that transform the wearer into art.
