Carmel Gallant


Born and raised in Sydney, Cape Breton, Carmel was always interested in anything fiber related. So when an opportunity to learn more came up at the Cape Breton School of Crafts, she was quick to sign up and has been weaving ever since. Carmel keeps up with her learning these days as well, studying under greats like Laura Fry, Jane Stafford and Janet Dawson to name a few. After she retired from the healthcare sector a few years back, Carmel’s husband built a studio at their home in St. Ann’s where she spends lots of time on her passion – weaving. She is currently enrolled in the Masters Weaving program from Old College Alberta, and has spent the last few summers at the Gaelic College as assistant to weaving instructor Dianne Quimby.
