Janice Zindel is a handweaver with special interest in Norwegian- Scandinavian weaving, and an on-going interest in woven shibori and indigo dyeing.  She also spins, wet-felts, and other fiber arts.  

Shuttle Works Studio has three large Glimakra looms made in Sweden.  They include a Standard to which we are adding a 20 shaft Opphamta attachment; a drawloom that will have a Myrehed shaft draw and single unit combo attachment; and a Regina tapestry/rug loom.  There are also spinning wheels and an Erlbacher Gearhart circular sock knitting machine. 

Apple Tree Studios Gallery is a shared space with my weaving and fiber works; works by my daughter Sarah Zindel/Celtic Wolf Studio who makes wire and stone jewelry; and works by my daughter-in-law Char Zindel/Heirloom Custom Wood Designs) who does woodworking, sign-making, and more.  

The pandemic rages on, and the studio and gallery are still closed except by appointment.  My family and I continue observing CDC guidelines for Covid 19, and require they be followed here by all visitors, for your safety and ours. 

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.
