Janice Zindel is a handweaver with a special interest in indigo dyed woven shibori, and a special interest in Norwegian- Scandinavian weaving.  Other fiber interests include spinning, wet-felting, and other fiber arts.  

Shuttle Works Studio has three large Glimakra looms made in Sweden, including a 48″ 10 shaft/12 treadle Standard; a 44″ 10 shaft, 10 treadle single unit drawloom, and a 60″ two shaft Regina vertical tapestry/rug loom.  Additional studio equipment includes spinning wheels, and an Erlbacher Gearhart circular sock knitting machine. 

I share a studio space with my daughter, Sarah Zindel/Celtic Wolf Studio, who makes wire/stone jewelry as well as steampunk style jewelry.

The pandemic continues and our studio spaces are still by appointment only.  We observe CDC guidelines including masks, social distancing, which are required here during visits for your safety and ours.  We have both been vaccinated.    

Artist Statement:  As a handweaver, my goal is to convey a sense of simplicity and elegance in my work. Using natural fibers, each warp is an opportunity to explore the elements of color, design, structure, texture, and technique, from simple to complex.
