Susanna Ayton came to weaving through the study of economic history. As she learned about the importance of textiles and so-called “women’s work,” she wanted to make that theoretical understanding practical. She found her way to Sätergläntan, the renowned Swedish school for handcraft. “What I love about weaving is the inherent magic of creating something tangible where once there were only disconnected threads,” Susanna notes. She currently works as one of two weaving teachers at Sätergläntan and has earlier worked as the head weaving teacher at Gamleby Folk School in southern Sweden.
