Instructors or Guides

Betsy Hagestedt

Betsy has been working with fiber since she was in elementary school, having learned to sew and knit from her mom. As an anthropologist, she uses her fiber practice as a means of connecting with people from other cultures, embracing the universal nature of fiber arts. Knitting gradually became her specialization due to its portability as she began to travel around the world. You can see some of her fiber experiments on her Instagram feed at behestknits.

Since starting at BARN she has been learning as many new skills as possible. She is highly involved in torchworking in the glass studio, and has started dabbling with welding and woodturning.
