Brittany Wittman approaches weaving through the lens of spirituality and teaches it as an art form and a way of healing. She encourages makers to cultivate their ideas with an openness to new creative processes and sense of self-discovery through art making. During the Summer of 1996, she was the weaving studio assistant at Peters Valley School of Craft. In 1997, she earned a B.S. in Textile Design from Philadelphia University, in 1999 was the weaving studio assistant at Haystack Mountain School of Craft; and she earned her MFA in Sculpture from The University of the Arts in 2004. She also gained experience teaching at her alma mater and in 2016 she created The Weaving Workshop, an online community and art journal, where weavers share inspiration and motivation around their artistic process.
