Instructor Bio

Michele Hayes

Michele has always loved color and the arts. She has been a Marketing Director, a Graphic Designer, and an Art Teacher. But her dream was to open a shop in Nashville, Indiana where her family calls home. In 2011 the dream was fulfilled when she opened The Clay Purl. The Clay Purl offers beautiful and unique fibers, yarns, tools, spinning wheels and looms. In 2021 The Brown County School for the Fiber Arts was launched with a weekend of fiber-y fun! Classes are offered throughout the year. In 2023 Michele Launched "Color County Yarns and Needle Felting"--a line of creatively hand dyed yarns inspired by the beauty of Brown County, Indiana and original needle felting kits. Creating a new Needle felting project is one of her favorite things to do (writing up the pattern, well that is another story).
