More information about Allie Hafez

Allie is acclaimed as a patient and inspiring instructor for beginners and experienced beaders alike. She teaches beading techniques to individuals and groups in both private homes and community-based settings. Her training and experience as an Occupational Therapist makes it possible for her to customize classes to the diverse abilities of her students.

Allie hopes someday to combine her skills as an artist and Occupational Therapist to help people with disabilities in developing countries participate in and contribute to their communities' development of local arts and crafts businesses. She has taken a course in "Cardboard Carpentry", which uses specialized techniques for producing affordable adaptive furniture and assistive devices for people with disabilities. Cardboard Carpentry extended Allie's long-term interest in recycling or re-purposing paper and other fibers for functional as well as decorative use.

Allie blogs about her art and other things related to creativity that catch her interest.
