GENERAL MEETING: "Finding Flow in the Process" with Michelle Wyman (IN-PERSON)

  • March 17, 2025
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Centre Concord, 5298 Clayton Road, Concord



Michelle Wyman

Michelle will share stories of her background as a professional actor, a Montessori teacher and quilt maker. There is a thread that connects all of these experiences that have led her to the creative process of making quilts.

For Michelle, craft is a verb and art a noun, so she crafts works of art with layers of fabric stitched together as a quilt. The design of the quilt, whether it is an interpretation of someone else’s pattern or her own design, is a practice of expression created with intent. She has grown as a quilter paying attention to the principles of design while also finding flow in the process of spontaneity and improvisation.

More About Michelle

Michelle grew up in the San Francisco Bay area.  She has a BA in Liberal Arts from Pomona College and an MFA from the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco.  She worked for several years as a professional actor before pivoting to a career in education while raising a family.  

Her first quilt was a lumpy mess sewn with love while pregnant with her first child. She realized then that the craft of making a quilt elevated not just an artistic visual expression but also an intangible process.

She currently lives with her husband in the coastal mountains above San Francisco Bay, where she advocates for environmental causes, gardens, hikes, and quilts.

Michelle will be teaching  "Aura Quilt" on May 3, 2025 (event to be posted soon).
