Kate Wilt is a fiber artist living in Monmouth County, New Jersey. While working as a visual merchandiser and women’s buyer, Kate was inspired to pursue a more sustainable and holistic approach to fashion and the arts. She honed her weaving and natural dyeing technique as an apprentice at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn, NY.
With a belief that working with your hands brings personal growth and healing, Kate continues to explore the gift that fiber has been to her so far. Her greatest hope is to create an approachable and safe environment for her community to learn and experience those gifts for themselves.
Kate Wilt received a 2018 Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. She currently works as an adjunct weaving instructor and animal care provider on a therapeutic farm for young adults with Autism. Kate also teaches independent weaving classes for her local community and maintains a personal art practice under the working title, Golden Fibers.
