Contact person: Lin Hightower

I am a professor at Kennesaw State University in Atlanta with an MFA in Fibers and doctorate in Art Education. I have served as an artist and art product designer for low-income artisans in Turkey, Nepal, India, Thailand, Egypt, Morocco, and Peru. My product designs expanded artisans’ sales markets while preserving their indigenous art techniques and cultural heritage. I have received three Fulbrights for work in this area. I have designed and taught courses at universities abroad to expand my work and make it sustainable.

Cloth Conspiracy-logoFor sixteen years, I lived a museum life. I am available for museum consultation on any issue, but specialize in exhibit design and development and curating textile exhibitions. I am a textile historian with expertise in Southwestern textiles and archaeological textiles, particularly ancient Andean cloth. I have experience in textile preservation, conservation, and archival storage of materials. I teach weaving, spinning, and natural dyeing and love sharing the joy of sustainable eco- dyeing. My Etsy shop, judyblues dyelab, donates 5% of all profits from eco-dyed fabrics to WARP.
