ash began facilitating workshops and classes in 2005 at manitoba theatre for young people. in the 15 years since, they have taught toddlers through adults, with the first 10 years focused on theatre creation and the last 5 years focused primarily on textiles, becoming known across canada and into the states as a natural dyer specializing in local colour palette exploration and the ethics and considerations that go into that (including decolonizing their practice as a descendent of settlers and indigenizing mindsets with regards to plant relations).
ash is a member of the queer community and approaches all of their workshops and classes through an intersectional feminist lens and with a focus on harm reduction and maintaining safe spaces for all students, regardless of age.
