Carmel Gallant – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Carmel Gallant

Carmel Gallant was born and raised in Cape Breton and has always been interested in the fibre arts. Carmel learned to knit and crochet at a young age, and took her first weaving class in 1985 at the Cape Breton School for Crafts.

Carmel continues to share her talent by working as an assistant to the Weaving Instructor at the Gaelic College during the summers, and also instructs in her own studio. As part of her craft, Carmel loves playing with structure and colour and works mainly with natural fibre cottons and wool.
