My campaign is now live! I'm raising money to spend a month in the Netherlands making art, studying traditional textiles, and learning skills to share in new workshops in the US! I was awarded an artist's residency at OBRAS Holland, in Renkum, NL, a couple hours from Amsterdam. I will give an artist's talk and open the studio on weekends to share my work with the community. I plan to have a few lessons in crochet for traditional caps from Spakenburg (pictured above on the woman I met there in the fabric store back in 2015) or another technique yet to be discovered! I'll also take a quick trip to Ukraine before returning home in search of their incredible embroidered blouses-- those sleeves!!!
Please contribute if you can and more importantly please share my campaign with the travelers and textile lovers that you know! Here's the link: http://bit.ly/2mGHQEq
Stay tuned for updates as my campaign grows!
