Current Artist in Residence





Muffy Young has been a handweaver and dyer since 1978. Originally inspired by textiles and landscapes when traveling in South America at age 16, Muffy continues to be influenced by the colors and design elements of Peruvian and Guatemalan cloth; she also draws inspiration from the textiles and natural landscapes of Central Asia and Africa.

Hand-dyeing her silk and wool yarns gives Muffy a great deal of control over her color palette, and her 24-harness loom allows her to be extremely creative in terms of scale, texture, and motif. Muffy's passion is to create pieces that are truly wearable art: beautiful to view and touch, and comfortably luxurious to wear.
