Linda Doerksen

Linda J. Doerksen is a textile enthusiast with an affinity for techniques of history and the haunts of museums. She is particularly delighted to talk about språng work and medieval narrow-wares. Though she inherited creative genes from her parents, Linda's interest in the fibre arts did not show up for another 40 years, and another 10 years until she discovered språng. Through her involvement with a medieval club, she received encouragement to explore the technique further. This is her online presentation to the club: Linda, with other members of House Blue Dog (, makes textile tools inspired by or copies of tools from ancient times, and uses those tools to turn fibre into functional, wearable art.
