Instructor Bios

Joan Namkoong is a 30 year plus weaver who lives on the Big Island. She weaves and sells functional textiles like scarves, shawls, towels, rugs, runners and yardage for household use. Silk is her favorite thread followed by cotton. Plain weave is used most of the time on her 8- shaft Gilmore loom. She also uses a drawloom to weave complex images and patterns.

Ann Sun is a weaver based in Kealakekua, Island of Hawaiʻi. Born and raised in Taiwan, she learned how to weave when she moved to Hawaiʻi from New York. Weaving simply hooked her. Her passion for textiles has transitioned from collecting to making ever since. Lover of all nature fibers, Ann finds her inspiration from the mountain and ocean on the island. She loves to use the form of weaving to create something functional and beautiful.
