Mirabel Oliver

A longtime lover of many craft practices, Mirabel has a Bachelor of Fine Arts with honours in sculpture from The University of Canterbury School. Her journey in wool began with knitting and she loves the domesticity associated with working with wool and its incredible uses, seeing it an important feature of family life. Mirabel was given a spinning wheel by her mother-in-law and was taught to spin by Annie Mackenzie. Mirabel is teaching drop spindle spinning in Ōtautahi Christchurch.
