Teaching and Community Involvement
As a dedicated art educator, Mirrah has taught individuals of all ages. She began teaching in 2014 and has since led short workshops at the Appalachian Center for Craft, Penland School of Craft, the Toe River Arts Council, and Mitchell County Senior Center. During the summer of 2018, she worked in collaboration with Nashville youth, as a part of the Frist Museum's ARTlabs program, to make a large-scale indigo-dyed piece within the theme of mental health.
This summer, you will find her teaching 4 classes at the Knoxville Arts & Fine Crafts Center as well as for Kids Camp in June at Penland School of Craft. Check the Event Calendar for details!
She loves collaborating and working with people of all disciplines, artists and otherwise. Please do not hesitate to send a message if you are interested in working with her. She is the Secretary of Tennessee Craft- Plateau, which provides resources to organize programs in the Plateau area of Middle Tennessee.
