    Teacher: Steve Clark
    Steve spent his education and career as a civil engineer in a very linear world. After retiring to the mountains he woke up and somehow had a pasture full of alpacas, sheep, llamas and angora goats. With rooms full of bags of fiber, he set off on a journey to leave the linear world behind and started the process of learning to knit, spin, dye, card and whatever other use he could find for the multiplying bags of fiber. As it turns out, his linear thinking has been most useful in the art of eco printing, which is a meeting place of creativity and science.
