Tara Mills BFA

Tara Mills has studied art in Canada and the United States. Her work has won numerous awards and has been shown in group and solo exhibitions.  She holds a bachelor's degree in fine art from Mount Allison University. 

Her interest in fibres began as a small child watching older women in her family engaged in handwork. Tara's interest in children's craft began after her oldest child was born with severe motor and cognitive impairments. For him, handwork, and in particular weaving, proved both therapeutic and curative. Tara believes that children and adults alike benefit when engaged in handwork with fibres.
