TEACHER: Anoush Mardjanian is an adventurous naturalist whose interest in paleoethnobiology has lead her to spin the unspinnable, to dye the undyable and to practice fiber processing as part of her everyday life. From raw wool to finished garments, silkworm growing and harvesting, bones collection and processing, healthy living and urban homesteading, her restless curiosity has taken her on many adventures. An accomplished spindle maker, she has done fiber demos all throughout the city, among them Queens Zoo, Queens Farm Museum, Union Square Urban Homesteading Fest, Maker Faire in 2013, NYC. Spanning three continents, life took her from Kiev to Moscow to Yerevan and then to the US in 1990. Today, Anoush's life closely resembles Gerald Durell's My Family and Other Animals, her role model since childhood, in other words, a combination of a natural history museum, a workshop and a zoo.
