Terry Flynn

Terry Flynn is a textile artist and art educator who creates garments, accessories, and sculptures that combine her interests in woven, braided, and knitted textiles. Her experience includes teaching and developing the textile arts classes for her weaving/knitting/braiding shop (1989-2000), returning to college to earn degrees in Fiber Arts and Art Education at MICA (2000-2005), and teaching art full-time (2005-present).

Terry is passionate about teaching the braided textiles of Japan and the Andes to both beginners and experienced braiders. She has co-published two books with Rodrick Owen, Andean Sling Braids, New Techniques for Textile Artists (2016), and Sling Braiding Traditions and Techniques from Peru, Bolivia and Around the World (2017). In 2020 she launched her first video workshop, Beginning Braiding on the Marudai, through Taproot Video. In August 2021 she taught virtual workshops in Andean sling braids and intermediate takadai for the American Kumihimo Society.
