Medium: WeavingAnna Rancourt has been weaving for over thirty-five years and she attributes her love of weaving to her mother-in-law Olivine Rancourt. Anna first wove without theory for several years but, she extended her skills and techniques by learning the theories behind weaving.
In the early 1970s Anna moved from Malartic, Quebec to Sudbury, Ontario where she taught weaving as an art form at the Centre des Jeuxes and at the Hanmer Weaver's Club through the Community Schools Program. Anna has also offered intensive weekend workshops in both Elliot Lake and Kapuskasing.
Weaving blends well with today's concerns about recycling and the use of natural fibres. By reusing the material from previously owned sheets and garments, Anna weaves functional articles such as rugs, placemats, potholders and blankets.
