Rebecca Juliette-Duex

Administrative Assistant

Rebecca Juli­ette-Duex was intro­duced to the value of craft at an early age. During visits to her mother’s child­hood home in rural Western Penn­syl­va­nia, she observed how her grand­par­ents found solace in their own hand­craft; her grand­fa­ther, a coal miner, in his wood­shop and her grand­mother with needle and thread or yarn. An immer­sion in weaving (2017 — 19) and wood­work­ing (2019 — 21) at Haywood Commu­nity College has been an oppor­tu­nity to build the skills neces­sary to honor the legacy of her grand­par­ents. Rebecca’s work brings wood and fiber into conver­sa­tion to tell the story of her own creative heritage and to inspire others to do the same.
