About the program

Monica Setziol-Phillips is a weaver, carver, and storyteller. She started weaving as a senior in college at PSU. After a stint in the Peace Corps she returned to Portland got a loom and started weaving again. Meanwhile she got a job teaching German and Art at North Catholic High School. After several years, she began teaching at the old School of Arts and Crafts in NW Portland. In 1975 she moved to the Bay Area. Her loom went with her and she continued to weave. Returning to Oregon in late 1986 she moved to Sheridan in order to be close to her parents who were having health problems. In addition to weaving, she began carving seriously and incorporated her weavings into carvings

In addition to showing photos of and talking about her work, She plans to talk about the importance of keeping the crafts alive and of nurturing creativity for all of us. She would also like to share some stories and talk a bit about the importance of folktales
