Nanette Davidson is a Career Artist with experience as a production weaver and weaving instructor at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Her interest and research in Shaker rag rug techniques came from the Hancock and Pleasant Hill Shaker Villages which inspired her own woven pieces. She has taught Shaker style weaving during Shaker Week at the Folk School and teaching classes on Shaker foodways. She is also an accomplished Culinary Instructor.
Nanette studied art at Western Carolina University and completed the professional craft textile intensive at Haywood College (she was in the first graduating class of that program in 1979). She has studied with Norman Kennedy, Mary Elva Erf, Rosealie Neilson and Catherine Ellis among many others. She was a work-study student in the homesteading program at the Folk School and has taught weaving classes there since 1982.
