Meet your host, Auli

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I taught textile crafts and art for almost thirty years in Finland and trained teachers in that field at the University of Helsinki. Since moving to California two years ago I've opened my own fiber art studio where I continue weaving, dyeing wool using local plants, and teaching workshops on knitting, dyeing and up-cycling.
